Booster shots and additional doses

Booster shots

Booster shots are for anyone whose had 2 previous vaccinations, ages 12 and older.

It is recommended to get a booster shot when you’re eligible.

From covid19.ca.gov/vaccines/#Booster-shots-and-additional-doses:

  • “If you got a Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, get a booster shot after 5 months
  • If you got a Johnson & Johnson vaccine, get a booster shot after 2 months”

According to covid19.ca.gov : “Your booster shot can be a different vaccine brand than you got in your original series. A Pfizer or Moderna booster is strongly advised for those who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Those aged 12-17 can only get a Pfizer booster.”
