On Friday, November 19, 2021, Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded recommendations for booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine in populations to now include all adults ages 18 years and older who received a primary mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

Under the new recommendations, all adults ages 18 and older may receive a booster shot at least six months after completing their primary mRNA vaccine series. In addition, ACIP updated recommendations for the groups who should receive a booster shot at least six months after completing their primary mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series to include: people ages 50 and older and residents ages 18 years and older in long-term care settings.  Learn more at https://dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/CDC-and-FDA-Expand-Eligibility-for-COVID-19-Booster-Shots-to-All-Adults.aspx
