MODERNA BOOSTER GUIDELINES
For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series is complete:
65 years and older
Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
CDC’s recommendations now allow for a mix and match for vaccine type for booster shots.
Heterologous dosing (mix and match) may be considered for the booster dose only.
Patients are allowed to self-attest to needing a booster vaccine.
