Pfizer Booster Dose Eligibility
Medical experts have found that the COVID-19 vaccines remain highly effective in preventing COVID-19 associated hospitalizations and deaths in most age groups, but that protection begins to wane after several months in older adults. As with other vaccines, a booster shot will strengthen the body’s ability to prevent disease from the virus that causes COVID-19. Results from a clinical trial and a large study in Israel found that a third dose of Pfizer vaccine 6 months after receipt of the second dose provides a strong boost to the body’s immune response to the virus that causes COVID-19. Based on scientific evidence, booster doses of the Pfizer vaccine are now recommended for some groups of people at least six months after their second dose, as shown below:

Those who should receive a booster dose of Pfizer:

  • Adults age 65 and older and those living in long-term care facilities
  • Adults age 50-64 with underlying medical conditions or who are at increased risk of social inequities

Those who may receive a booster dose:

  • Adults age 18 through 64 years:
    • with underlying medical conditions, or
    • who are at increased risk for SARS-CoV-2 exposure and transmission because of where they work or live, such as teachers, grocery store employees, health care workers and people who live in congregate care settings.
