Booster Information

  • Booster fact sheet from the California Department of Public Health.
  • A booster dose is a dose of vaccine that is needed when a person's level of immunity has decreased over time. Booster doses are very common and are a normal part of most vaccine series. 
  • Mix and Match: 
    • A single booster dose of any of the available COVID-19 vaccines may be administered as a mix and match (heterologous) booster dose following completion of primary vaccination with a different available COVID-19 vaccine.  
    • For example, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine recipients 18 years and older may receive a single booster dose of the J&J or Pfizer, or a booster dose of Moderna (half dose) at least two months after receiving their J&J primary vaccination.
    • In another example, Moderna and Pfizer vaccine recipients falling into one of the authorized categories for boosters may receive a booster dose of Moderna (half dose), Pfizer or J&J at least six months after completing their primary vaccination.
  • A Pfizer or Moderna booster dose is recommended if you: 
    • Received your second dose at least six months ago, and
    • Are 65 or older, or
    • Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings, or
    • Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions, or
    • Age 18+ who are at increased risk due to social inequity, or
    • Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
  • A Johnson & Johnson booster dose is recommended if you:

    • Received your first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago, and
    • Are 18 or older
  • Contact your doctor if you have questions about if a booster is right for you.
  • For information on booster eligibility, visit the CDC.
