ATTENTION REGARDING THIRD DOSE VACCINES:

What is the difference between a third additional dose and a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine? 

The third additional dose. People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised may not produce a robust enough immune response to the two-dose series of mRNA vaccine to be protective and therefore need a third dose to complete their series and be fully vaccinated. 

A booster dose is an additional dose that is needed after the protection of the initial series has lessened over time.  A booster dose is recommended for certain groups of people described below to “boost” protection but unless someone is moderately to severely immunocompromised, they are still considered fully vaccinated after their initial series is complete. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. 

                                                

ADDITIONAL DOSE INFORMATION:

THIRD DOSE (Moderna or Pfizer): An additional dose administered to individuals who are immunosuppressed due to underlying medical conditions or immune-suppressing medications. For immunocompromised individuals, an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine should be given anytime 28 days after completion of their primary series and applies to those who received an initial Pfizer or Moderna dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

PLEASE ONLY SCHEDULE BELOW FOR A THIRD DOSE IF YOU MEET THE CONDITIONS LISTED ABOVE OR YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER FEELS YOU SHOULD HAVE AN ADDITIONAL DOSE.

 

BOOSTER DOSE (Pfizer and Moderna only): A single booster dose, to be administered at least six months after completion of the primary series for:

  • individuals 65 years of age and older and long-term care facility residents;
  • Individuals 50-64 with underlying medical conditions. A list of medical conditions that increase risk for severe disease are broad and can be found here;
  • Individuals 18-49 with underlying medical conditions; and
  • the CDC also recommends that individuals aged 18-64 years.

BOOSTER DOSE (Johnson and Johnson's Janssen only):  A single booster dose, to be administered at least two months after completion of the primary dose for everyone.
