COVID booster shots
On Oct. 21, the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices (ACIP) recommended the use of COVID-19 vaccination boosters for both the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson and Johnson) under the current emergency use authorization. Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine boosters were previously recommended by ACIP on Sept. 24.
Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccines are currently recommended for individuals 18 years of age and older who have completed their initial COVID-19 vaccination series, at least six months have passed since the completion of their second dose and they meet one of the following criteria:
Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 booster vaccines are currently recommended for individuals who have received their initial COVID-19 vaccination and at least two months have passed since their initial dose.
There are booster shot recommendations for all three COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose, when available. Some individuals may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, while others may prefer to get a different booster.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots of COVID-19 vaccine.
