How many doses do I need?

There are multiple COVID vaccines, so be sure to check with your medical provider for specific instructions. The Pfizer (Comirnaty), Moderna (Spikevax), and Novavax vaccines require two doses in the primary series, while the Johnson & Johnson has one initial dose. Booster doses are recommdned, and additional boosters may be recommended in the future, so be sure to check with your healthcare provider if you are not sure whether you are up-to-date on booster doses. You can learn more about when you should get your booster dose(s) on the CDC's webpage.
