When should individuals5 and up get a booster?

Everyone over the age of five can – and should – get a booster shot as soon as they are eligible. Individuals 5 years of age and older are eligible for the updated booster if it has been at least two months since they completed their primary vaccination series or received a booster shot. The updated Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized for use as a booster dose in individuals 5 years and older, and the updated Moderna bivalent vaccine is authorized as a booster dose in individuals 6 years and older.

Also, the FDA has authorized a booster option for adults who have completed their primary series vaccination but are unable or unwilling to receive an mRNA vaccine.

Is it safe for pregnant people to get a booster?

The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination and boosters when eligible for those who are pregnant or hoping to become pregnant. Studies show pregnant individuals are at an increased risk for severe illness, hospitalization and even death from COVID-19. Those infected with COVID-19 during pregnancy are also at an increased risk of preterm birth and stillbirth.

The vaccines are safe and effective, and the data suggest that the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any known or potential risks of vaccination during pregnancy. In fact, vaccination during pregnancy or while breastfeeding builds antibodies that may even help protect the baby.

What is a booster?

A “booster” refers to an extra dose of a vaccine after the original (or primary) dose is administered. COVID-19 vaccines remain highly effective against the virus, but protection can wane over time. Booster shots increase the level of immune response in those who are fully vaccinated and provide more protection against COVID-19.

Can a person get a booster if they recently had COVID-19?

The CDC recommends getting a booster shot as soon as you’re no longer contagious. For most people, that’s about 10 days after testing positive or 10 days after first noticing symptoms.

Getting a COVID-19 booster shot after recovering from COVID-19 increases your body’s immune response helping improve protection against reinfection, which is particularly important in the wake of the Omicron variants.
