Eligibility and availability of COVID-19 vaccine booster

Who is eligible for a booster of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Moderately and severely immunocompromised individuals

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have authorized a third dose of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines for moderately and severely immunocompromised individuals ages 12 and older at least 28 days following the second dose.

This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medication to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response
  • Received CAR-T cell therapy

Please note your third dose should be the same product as the original series. As a reminder, Pfizer is authorized for individuals ages 12 and older, and Moderna is authorized for individuals ages 18 and older.


Individuals 65 years of age and older and certain adults

The FDA and CDC have authorized a booster of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine six months after the second Pfizer dose for certain adults.

Eligibility is as follows:

  • All individuals 65 and older who received only the Pfizer vaccine
  • All individuals 18 to 64 years of age with underlying medical conditions who received only the Pfizer vaccine
  • All individuals 18 to 64 years of age who are healthcare workers or have another job that puts them at increased risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and received only the Pfizer vaccine
  • All residents of long-term care facilities who received only the Pfizer vaccine

We continue to monitor the FDA and CDC for new developments and will provide updates if a booster is recommended for additional populations. Those who received Moderna or J&J vaccines need to wait for further guidance and recommendations from the CDC and FDA.
