Boosters

Everyone 18 and older can now get a booster dose of the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Boosters are recommended at least 6 months after the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and 2 months after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

You can get any COVID-19 vaccine brand for your booster dose, even if it’s different from what you received before (“mixing and matching”). For example, you can get a Moderna booster even if you were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Additional Pfizer and Moderna doses

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.

You might need an additional dose if:

  • You got the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, and
  • You’re moderately to severely immunocompromised, and
  • It’s been at least 28 days since your second dose.

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. The Pfizer vaccine is currently approved for kids ages 5 to 17. To learn more, check out frequently asked questions about COVID-19 vaccination for:

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

All approved COVID-19 vaccines have been 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). Adults can also choose which vaccine brand to get for their booster, even if it’s different from what they got before.

Children ages 5 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 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.
