All Adults Now Eligible for Booster Shots

 

Vaccine

Everyone 18 years or older is now eligible for a booster shot at any vaccine location - as long as it has been at least six months after their last Pfizer or Moderna shot or at least two months after their one-dose Johnson & Johnson shot.

With the holidays approaching and the Delta variant continuing to impact the state, everyone eligible is encouraged to get booster shots.

Eligible individuals can get boosted with any of the three available vaccines, no matter which type they initially received.

CDC Q&A

Q: I’m vaccinated but just tested positive for coronavirus. What should I do?

A: Fully vaccinated people should not visit private or public settings if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

It is possible a person could be infected just before or just after vaccination and still get sick. After a person is fully vaccinated — two weeks after their final dose — there is reduced risk of spreading Covid-19, the CDC says. Research shows vaccinated people who still get breakthrough infections have less detectable virus (viral load) than unvaccinated people who get infected.

Q: I’m not feeling well, but I’ve already been vaccinated. Should I get tested for coronavirus?


A:
If you think you might have Covid-19 symptoms, get tested regardless of your vaccination status.

Q: Do we need Covid-19 vaccine booster shots?

A: Booster shots are available for those considered immunocompromised. Boosters shots for all others who wish to receive them are expected to be more widely available this fall.
