On January 7, 2022, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded recommendations for booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Under the new recommendations:

  • All adults ages 18 and older may receive a booster shot at least five months after completing their primary mRNA vaccine series. Those 18 years and older may receive the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine as a booster.
  • Teens aged 12-17 years may only get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster. The booster may be done at least 5 months after completing the primary mRNA vaccine series.
