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.

At this time, only certain groups of people should get an additional dose or booster shot. Talk to your doctor to see if an additional dose or booster is right for you. 

Additional Pfizer and Moderna doses

Additional doses are considered part of your primary vaccine series. Although most people only need the recommended number of Pfizer or Moderna doses, some immunocompromised people  may need an extra dose to get the full immune response.

You might need an additional dose if you:

  • Got the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, and
  • Are moderately to severely immunocompromised

See more details on who this includes. If you’re eligible, schedule your third dose 28 days after your second dose, and get the same COVID-19 vaccine you received before. 

Pfizer booster shots

Pfizer booster shots are recommended for people who have been fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine for 6 months or more and are in one of these groups: 

  • 65 years or older
  • Residents in long-term care
  • 18 years or older with underlying medical conditions
  • 18 to 64 years and work in high-risk settings

See more details on who can get a Pfizer booster shot.  

Moderna boosters and Johnson & Johnson

Although some immunocompromised people can get an additional Moderna dose as part of their primary vaccine series, Moderna boosters are not currently approved. Neither additional doses nor booster shots are approved for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at this time. 

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone ages 12 and older. Adults ages 18 and up can get any of the available vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson). Children ages 12 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. 

All approved COVID-19 vaccines have shown to be safe and effective. No matter what, you’re getting excellent protection against COVID-19.

Adults ages 18 and up can get any of the available vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson). Children ages 12 to 17 can get the Pfizer vaccine.

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 people ages 12 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 people ages 12 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.
