The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine for certain populations and for those in high-risk occupational and institutional settings. These recommendations are ONLY for individuals who received the two-dose (primary) series of Pfizer vaccine.

CDC recommends:

  • People 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer.
  • People 50 - 64 years of age with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer.
  • People 18 - 49 years of age with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • People 18 - 64 years of age who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their second

Booster shots may be recommended in the future for those who received COVID vaccines manufactured by Moderna or Johnson & Johnson, or those who received a different mRNA vaccine for each dose in the primary series. The CDC will evaluate with similar urgency available data in the coming weeks to swiftly make additional recommendations.
