UPDATED Pfizer Booster Eligibility

As of January 4, 2022:

  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that Pfizer recipients who have completed their initial  COVID-19 vaccine series can get a booster shot at five months instead of six months, expanding protection against COVID-19 to more people sooner.
  • The CDC also recommended that moderately or severely immunocompromised children ages 5 to 11 be able to receive a third dose 28 days after their second shot, which will help strengthen protections for this vulnerable population.  Eligibility for these groups is effective immediately.
  • The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for boosters in individuals ages 16 and up and is currently the only vaccine authorized and recommended for children ages 5-11.
