Frequently asked questions

Just a mask and any personal items you need! You can bring your vaccine card or record if you’ve already had a dose, or any vaccine clinic can access your COVID-19 vaccination record virtually when you arrive.

Everyone 12 and older should get a booster dose. Boosters help your body stay strong against COVID-19 as time goes on.

When to get a booster

Boosters are recommended:

  • 5 months after your final Pfizer dose
  • 5 months after your final Moderna dose
  • 2 months after your Johnson & Johnson dose

Which booster you should get

Children and teens ages 5 to 17 can only get the Pfizer booster and need parental consent. Adults can get any vaccine brand, but the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) are recommended over Johnson & Johnson for most people. Talk to a healthcare provider if you have questions or need help choosing a booster.

Most people who get the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines only need 2 doses to be fully vaccinated. Some immunocompromised people may need an additional (third) dose to get the same initial immune response.

If you're moderately to severely immunocompromised, you should get an additional dose if:

  • You're 5 or older and received your second Pfizer dose 28 days ago.
  • You're 18 or older and received your second Moderna dose 28 days ago.

Additional doses aren't recommended for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at this time. Ask your doctor if an additional dose is right for you.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone ages 5 and older. Adults ages 18 and up can get any of the available vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson). Children ages 5 to 17 can get the Pfizer vaccine.

Talk to your doctor before getting the vaccine if you have a weakened immune system due to conditions like cancer, a medication you’re taking, or if you’re pregnant.

For more details, visit the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) website.

We encourage all eligible children to get vaccinated and boosted. The Pfizer vaccine is currently available for kids ages 5 to 17. This includes the initial vaccine series, as well as a booster 5 months later.

Talk to your child’s doctor about any other questions or concerns you have.

Children ages 5 to 17 can get the Pfizer vaccine with parental consent.

Adults can get any of the available vaccine brands. However, the mRNA brands (Pfizer and Moderna) are recommended over Johnson & Johnson for most adults. Talk to a healthcare provider if you have questions or need help choosing.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has full FDA approval for people 16 and up. This means extended data has shown that the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective against COVID-19 and that the benefits outweigh the risks.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is still available for children ages 5 to 15 under emergency use authorization (EUA). See the following question to learn more.

Emergency use authorization (EUA) is different from full FDA approval – but safety and efficacy are still at the center. During a public health crisis, EUA allows the FDA to offer vaccines sooner (and potentially save lives sooner, too). During this time, the FDA works with the vaccine developer and clinical researchers, continually reviewing the vaccine, looking closely at data and planning next steps.

Though fully approved for people 16 and up, the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available under EUA for children ages 5 to 15. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are also available under EUA for people 18 and up.

You can schedule your COVID-19 vaccine online or through your MyAtriumHealth account. For help, call 704-468-8888.
