Booster shots and additional primary doses of COVID-19 vaccines

You may have heard about “booster shots” and “additional primary doses” for people who got a COVID-19 vaccine. The main difference between these two shots is who gets them and why.

A BOOSTER SHOT is for individuals who are fully vaccinated. These people already got two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty or Moderna/Spikevax vaccine or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Their bodies probably created enough antibodies to protect them, but health officials believe their immunity may go down over time.

The CDC recommends that all fully vaccinated individuals should get a booster shot.

Age eligibility

  • Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty: ages 12 and older
  • Moderna/Spikevax: ages 18 and older

When to get a booster shot

  • Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax: at least 5 months after getting the 2nd dose

AN ADDITIONAL PRIMARY DOSE is for specific people who have weakened immune systems. These people have already received two doses of either Moderna/Spikevax or Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty vaccine. However, their bodies may not have created enough of an immune response to protect them from getting COVID-19. An additional primary dose of vaccine at least 28 days after completing their 2nd dose will help get them to a good immunity level. This group 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 their immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medicine to suppress their 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 medicine that may suppress their immune response
