COVID-19 Booster Shots

The CDC recommends COVID-19 booster shots for people 12 years of age and older for protection against COVID-19 severe illness, hospitalization, and death. The current recommendations for booster shots are:

  • Pfizer: 1st booster shot for ages 12 and older 5 months after your 2nd dose; 2nd booster shot for ages 50 and older 4 months after your 1st booster.  
  • Moderna: 1st booster shot for ages 18 and older 5 months after your 2nd dose; 2nd booster shot for ages 50 and older 4 months after your 1st booster.
  • J&J: For ages 18 and older 2 months after your 1st dose; mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) are preferred for booster shots

More Options

  • ADRC  – If you or someone you know is 60 years of age or older or has a disability and needs help getting a COVID-19 vaccine, contact your local ADRC. They can help with finding a location, signing up, and may be able to help getting people to their appointments.
  • Minneapolis VA Website  – Veterans, their spouses and caregivers, and Champ VA beneficiaries Can get a vaccine through the VA.
  • VaccineFinder - You can find a vaccine through your healthcare provider or pharmacy using the VaccineFinder site. 

After Vaccination

Continue to wear a mask when indoors with unvaccinated people from more than one household or when attending crowded, outdoor events. Fully vaccinated people should also continue wearing a mask and practice physical distancing when visiting unvaccinated people who are at an increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you have received your second dose in a two-dose series, or one dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. (Pfizer and Moderna are both 2-dose vaccines and Johnson & Johnson is a single dose vaccine.) You are considered up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccinations when you have completed the primary series or shot and you have received your booster (once you are eligible).

Fully vaccinated people can: 

  • Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
  • Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are all at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease, indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
