COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters
Who Needs an Additional COVID-19 Vaccine?
CDC has strengthened its recommendation on booster doses for individuals who are 18 years and older. Everyone ages 18 and older should get a booster shot either when they are 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series, or 2 months after their initial J&J vaccine.
The recent emergence of the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19. Early data from South Africa suggest increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant, and scientists in the United States and around the world are urgently examining vaccine effectiveness related to this variant. It is strongly encouraged that the 47 million adults who are not yet vaccinated get vaccinated as soon as possible and to get the children and teens in their families vaccinated as well. Strong immunity will likely prevent serious illness. Furthermore, individuals who are sick should get a COVID-19 test. Increased testing will help us identify Omicron quicker.
To stop the spread of COVID-19, we need to follow the prevention strategies we know work.
