Who needs an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose or booster?
In alignment with FDA approval for a booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has authorized use in certain populations.
For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:
· 65 years and older
· Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
· Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
· Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC's recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Booster shots are available at the Texas County Health Department and most local pharmacies.
Booster shots should not be confused with third doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines that are approved for immunocompromised patient populations.
Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:
· Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
· Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
· Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
· Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
· Advanced or untreated HIV infection
· Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response
People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
Is the vaccine safe for kids?
The Pfizer vaccine was studied in more than 3,000 children and found to be safe before the FDA approved the vaccine for emergency use in November of 2021. They concluded that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks. You can learn more about the pediatric vaccine from Pfizer at the CDC's website here.
