Guidance for immunocompromised individuals

Additional COVID-19 Vaccines for moderately to severely immunocompromised people
The CDC now recommends that people with certain immunocompromising conditions that received the mRNA vaccine get an additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Those who qualify should get the same vaccine product (either Moderna or Pfizer for now), and the third dose should be given at least 28 days after your second dose of vaccine. There is currently not enough data to recommend that people who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should receive an additional dose at this time.

Even after receiving an additional dose, those with a weak immune system should continue to follow guidance to protect themselves from COVID-19, such as wearing a mask, staying 6 feet from people you do not live with, and avoiding crowds or poorly ventilated indoor spaces.

Your health care provider is likely the best place to get vaccinated, or you can go to any COVID-19 vaccine provider.

Booster shots

There are currently no recommendations for people without an immunocompromising condition who have already been fully vaccinated to receive:

  • Another dose (often called a booster dose) of any brand of COVID-19 vaccine  
  • A dose of another type of COVID-19 vaccine.

Medical researchers continue to gather data on how long protection from COVID-19 vaccines lasts and whether any additional doses of vaccine may be needed for people who are already fully vaccinated.
