CDC Recommends Booster Dose for All Adults Who Receive Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated the Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to authorize a booster dose for all adults 18 years of age and older at least 6 months after their primary series.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky endorsed the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ recommendation that booster doses of these vaccines be available to all adults.
Vaccine providers may immediately begin administering booster doses to all adults ages 18 years and older.
Note: The Moderna COVID-19 booster dose is half of the dose (50 mcg or 0.25 mL) that is administered for the primary series dose.
For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots continue to be recommended for those who are 18 and older and least two months after vaccination.
Regardless of which vaccine people got for their primary series, they may choose any authorized vaccine for their booster (mix-and-match).
