All Adults Now Eligible for Booster Shots


Everyone 18 years or older is now eligible for a booster shot at any vaccine location - as long as it has been at least six months after their last Pfizer or Moderna shot or at least two months after their one-dose Johnson & Johnson shot.

With the holidays approaching and the Delta variant continuing to impact the state, everyone eligible is encouraged to get booster shots.

Eligible individuals can get boosted with any of the three available vaccines, no matter which type they initially received.

Stay Safe this Thanksgiving

Face mas

Although the availability and use of effective vaccines promises a return toward normalcy for this year’s holiday season, it’s still important to continue taking steps to lessen the risk to you, your family, and your friends.  

To stay safe this holiday season: 

  • Get vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19 (including a booster, if eligible) 
  • Celebrate with those who are fully vaccinated, outdoors, or in places with good ventilation 
  • Wear a mask indoors if unvaccinated. Wear a mask in crowded indoor spaces and in high-risk settings regardless of vaccination status 
  • Get tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms or are in close contact with someone presumed to have COVID-19 
  • Stay home if you feel sick!
