The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that certain immunocompromised individuals and people over the age of 50 who received an initial Moderna or Pfizer booster dose at least four months ago are eligible for another shot of either vaccine. CDC also said adults 50 years or older who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least four months ago may receive a second booster dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
