Who can get an additional dose or booster dose?

People who have moderate to severe immunosuppression qualify to receive an additional dose, usually because of an organ or stem cell transplant, HIV infection, steroid therapy, or certain cancer treatments that impair the body’s ability to fight infections. Learn more about additional doses here »

Guidelines from the FDA and CDC recommend a booster shot to boost the body’s immune response and offer extra protection for several groups of people (if they received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least six months ago). These groups include:

  • adults age 65 and older
  • residents of long-term care facilities
  • adults 18-64 with underlying medical conditions (including cancer)
  • adults working in healthcare or other occupations putting them at high risk of contracting COVID-19

Do I have to get vaccinated at the same location?

You must receive your two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine or Moderna vaccine at the same location.

If you are receiving an additional dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, you do not need to receive it at the same location as your first two doses.
