Information about Booster Doses

Why you need a booster dose

A booster dose is an additional shot of vaccine that helps you maintain and lengthen your protection against COVID-19. When you get a booster dose, you’re helping protect you and the people around you from COVID-19.

All booster doses will be mRNA vaccines

You will receive either the Moderna or Pfizer (mRNA) vaccine for your booster dose. These vaccines are interchangeable.

If you received AstraZeneca for your first or second dose, you will receive Moderna or Pfizer for your booster.

When you can get your booster dose

The timing of your booster dose is based on your risk level of getting COVID-19, your age and the time since your second dose.

Once you become eligible, you remain eligible. You will not miss your opportunity to get your booster dose.
