Additional Doses of COVID-19 Vaccine

Booster Doses

TCHD will be offering these booster doses at our regular Covid-19 vaccine clinics.

For Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine recipients:

  • Everyone age 16 years and older can get a booster shot at least 5 months after completing their 2-dose primary series. Teens ages 16-17 years old can only get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot.
  • Second boosters are recommended at least 4 months after first boosters, for individuals over the age of 50 or with immunocomprised conditions.

For Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients:

  • You should receive a booster shot at least 2 months after receiving your primary shot.  Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA COVID-19 vaccines) are preferred in most situations.
Third Doses for Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised Individuals

Some people with moderately or severely compromised immune systems should receive an additional primary dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine 28 days after completing their 2-dose primary series. You should get the same product as your initial 2 doses.

  • CDC recommends that moderately or severely immunocompromised people ages 12 years and older who completed their Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine primary series and ages 18 years or older who completed their Moderna COVID-19 vaccine primary series should plan to get an additional primary dose. This additional primary dose is intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their primary vaccine series

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

  • Those seeking a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine DO NOT need documentation from their healthcare provider, we just ask that you speak with your provider first to ensure that an additional dose is appropriate for you at this time.
  • You can receive a 3rd dose at any one of our walk-in clinics.  Please ensure it has been at least 28 days since your 2nd dose.
