Important Update on Third Doses of the COVID-19 Vaccines

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) to allow for additional doses of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for certain groups of people.

Here is what you need to know:

  • For those who are immunocompromised, including those who have had a solid organ transplant, are on chemotherapy, or have certain chronic illnesses:
    • Third doses of both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been approved.
    • A third dose of the same vaccine is encouraged and can be received 28 days or more from the second dose.
  • For those who are NOT immunocompromised:
    • Third doses of Pfizer (and Pfizer only) have been approved if you received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine and meet one of the following criteria:
      • Age 65 and above.
      • Age 18+ with an underlying condition.
      • Age 18+ who live or work in high-risk settings, which includes health care workers.
    • The third dose of Pfizer for non-immunocompromised people can be received 6 months or more after the second dose.
  • Please bring your official CDC card with you to receive an additional/third dose.
  • A third dose of Moderna (for anyone beyond the immunocompromised), or an additional dose of J&J have not yet been approved.
