People who have completed their initial Pfizer series may be eligible for a booster dose. People aged 65 years and older, residents in long-term care settings, people aged 50-64 years with underlying medical conditions, and other high risk groups are eligible to receive a booster dose. To see if you should receive a booster dose, please visit this website. At this time, the Pfizer booster authorization only applies to people whose primary series was Pfizer vaccine. People in the recommended groups who got the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine will likely need a booster shot in the near future.

COVID-19 Vaccine General Information
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fully approved the Pfizer (Cormirnaty) COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 16 years and up, but remains under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for those 12-15 years of age. The Moderna vaccine, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine still remain under EUA. Other COVID-19 vaccines that are in Phase II or III trials can be found through this COVID-19 vaccine tracker. The FDA will only give a COVID-19 vaccine an EUA if the current phase III trial data shows the vaccine is safe and has more benefits than risks.
