Who is eligible for a vaccine Booster?

All three vaccines are available as a booster dose for everyone 18 and older.

Health experts strongly recommend the following groups of people get a booster dose to continue to keep our communities safe from COVID-19:

  • 50 and older
  • 18 and older who live in long-term care settings
  • Anyone 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should get a booster dose two months or more after their first dose

Booster doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available for anyone 18 and older who are at least six months after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

You can choose between Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines as your booster dose. Your booster vaccine does not have to be the same as your original vaccine.
