COVID-19 booster vaccination.
On October 21st, 2021, CDC endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation for a booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines 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


The CDC and FDA recommend that if you received the Janssen/Johnson&Johnson vaccine at least two months ago and are age 18 or older, an additional shot is recommended.
The FDA has authorized three vaccine boosters — Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Janssen/Johnson&Johnson — and determined that it is safe for individuals to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster or additional dose that is a different brand than the initial dose or doses.
