All Adults Eligible for COVID-19 Booster Shots
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have approved the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for all adults.
Boosters provide increased protection against COVID-19 infection, reducing your chance of getting sick or spreading the virus.
Individuals age 18 and older who have received both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines may get a booster six months after their last shot.
Individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should receive a booster two months after their initial shot.
No matter what primary vaccination you received (2 doses of Moderna or Pfizer or 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson), you can receive any vaccine as a booster. Cook County Health sites offer all three vaccines.
Anyone age 5 and older can get vaccinated—it is free for all, regardless of insurance or immigration status! Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for children under age 18.
The number of COVID-19 cases is rising. If you have not yet gotten vaccinated, now is the time.
