Do I need a booster?

Boosters can enhance or restore protection that may have decreased over time after your primary series vaccination, or some may be geared toward increasing protection against specific prominent strains of the virus.

Boosters are recommended and you should check to see if you are due for a booster dose. Timing and number of doses may vary based on age, health status and the type of vaccine you received for your primary dose.

Learn more from the CDC about booster doses.
