About Booster doses:

You must be 12 or older to receive a Pfizer booster dose and 18 or over to receive a Johnson & Johnson or Moderna booster dose. Those who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines should wait at least five months after their second dose before getting a booster. Those who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson are eligible to get a booster two months after their initial dose.

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
