Booster Shots Eligibility

Booster Shots Are Available for Some Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine Recipients

Only certain populations initially vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine can get a booster shot at this time.

Older adults and 50-64 year old people with medical conditions

People aged 65 years and older and adults 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should get a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The risk of severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age, and can also increase for adults of any age with underlying medical conditions.

Long-term care setting residents aged 18 years and older

Residents aged 18 years and older of long-term care settings should get a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Because residents in long-term care settingsexternal icon live closely together in group settings and are often older adults with underlying medical conditions, they are at increased risk of infection and severe illness from COVID-19.

People with medical conditions aged 18-49 years

People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may get a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine based on their individual benefits and risks. Adults aged 18–49 years who have underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. However, that risk is likely not as high as it would be for adults aged 50 years and older who have underlying medical conditions. People aged 18–49 years who have underlying medical conditions may get a booster shot after considering their individual risks and benefits. This recommendation may change in the future as more data become available.

Employees and residents at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission

People aged 18–64 years at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may get a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine based on their individual benefits and risks. Adults aged 18–64 years who work or reside in certain settings (e.g., health care, schools, correctional facilities, homeless shelters) may be at increased risk of being exposed to COVID-19, which could be spreading where they work or reside. Since that risk can vary across settings and based on how much COVID-19 is spreading in a community, people aged 18–64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may get a booster shot after considering their individual risks and benefits. This recommendation may change in the future as more data become available.

Examples of workers who may get Pfizer-BioNTech booster[ 1 ] shots

  • First responders (e.g., healthcare workers, firefighters, police, congregate care staff)
  • Education staff (e.g., teachers, support staff, daycare workers)
  • Food and agriculture workers
  • Manufacturing workers
  • Corrections workers
  • U.S. Postal Service workers
  • Public transit workers
  • Grocery store workers

Mix-and-match Vaccines

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Mass COVID-19 Vaccination Locations


A legally authorized representative (usually a parent or guardian) must give permission (also called consent) for vaccination for someone under the age of 18, such as by completing a written consent form that the minor (the person under the age of 18) can bring to their vaccination appointment. We require all individuals under 18, unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, to download a copy of the consent form, have it signed, and show proof upon vaccination appointment. 

The parent or guardian does not need to go with the minor to their vaccination appointment to give consent.

COVID-19 Vaccination Updates, Guides & Resources

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending COVID-19 vaccination for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future. More information is available on CDC.gov: COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding.

Vaccination Facts & Myths

Thank you for your trust, patience, and support, and please stay tuned to this page for updates. A few final reminders:

  • While awaiting COVID-19 vaccination, and even after being vaccinated, please stay safe by wearing a mask whenever you’re in a public area, staying at least 6 feet away from people with whom you do not live, washing and sanitizing your hands regularly, and refraining from touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible.
  • Even after being vaccinated, we urge patients to continue wearing a face covering or mask. We are encouraging everyone to wear a mask in public and to contribute to a shared national effort of saving every possible life. When you protect yourself and your loved ones, you are also protecting our frontline healthcare heroes.
  • The vaccine is free of charge for recipients, but if you have health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, please be prepared to share that information during the scheduling and appointment process.
