Additional COVID-19 Booster Recommendations

Posted 4/1/2022 in Public Health

Brought to you by Delaware County Public Health

The CDC recently announced certain individuals are eligible to get an additional COVID-19 booster. This is due to the increased risk of severe illness with these populations.

If the listed ages below have received their first booster dose at least 4 months ago, they are now eligible to receive a second booster dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Ages 12+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised (Pfizer-BioNTech)
  • Ages 18+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised (Moderna)
  • Ages 50+ (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna)

In addition, adults aged 18+ who received a primary vaccine and a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

Booster doses are readily available in our communities. Schedule your appointment today!
