About Covid-19 Vaccination Options

Below is information about each COVID-19 vaccine that is currently available: 

Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine (2 doses, 21 days apart):

Moderna (2 doses, 28 days apart):

Johnson & Johnson (1 dose):

Booster (3rd doses) available:

The new Omicron-specific boosters are now available for the following:

    •    People 18 years of age and older are eligible for a single dose of the updated Moderna booster IF it has been at least two months since they completed primary vaccination or have received the most recent booster dose with any booster.

    •    People 12 years of age and older are eligible for a single dose of the updated Pfizer-BioNTech booster IF it has been at least two months since they completed primary vaccination or have received the most recent booster dose with any booster.

Booster doses are available for anyone ages 12 or older who got their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least 5 months ago or their first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago. If you are 12 to 17 years old, you can only receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for your booster dose right now. People who are immunocompromised may also get a 3rd primary dose AND a booster dose.
