COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose
Booster doses of Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J COVID-19 vaccines are available for eligible people in Rhode Island.
Who can get booster doses?
Johnson & Johnson
Everyone who is age 18 and older and who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine can get a booster dose two months or more after their first dose.
Pfizer and Moderna
People who got the two doses of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines can get a booster dose six months or more after their second dose if they are:
- Anyone age 65 years or older
- Anyone age 18 or older who lives in long-term care settings
- Anyone age 18 or older who has an underlying medical condition
- Anyone age 18 or older who works or lives in high-risk settings
What does this mean for you?
According to the Rhode Island Department of Health, Rhode Island has high community transmission of COVID-19 and we are seeing more and more cases. As the winter approaches and we move indoors, most people age 18 to 64 will be at a higher risk for exposure to COVID-19 and will fall into this category (Anyone age 18 or older who works or lives in high-risk settings). Therefore, anyone 18+ is eligible to receive a booster shot.
When can I get a booster?
- Eligible Rhode Islanders who got two doses of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine can get a booster dose (of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine) at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna.
- Eligible Rhode Islanders who got a first dose of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine can get a booster dose (of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine) at least two months after their first dose of J&J.
Can I get a different vaccine type for my booster dose?
- Getting a booster shot of any COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized or approved in the US will increase your protection against COVID-19 and its variants, like Delta. Early research shows that mixing vaccines, like getting a first dose of Johnson & Johnson and then a Moderna booster dose, could offer better protection.
- Eligible people can choose which vaccine they get as a booster dose. If you are unsure which booster dose to get, talk to a healthcare provider or review CDC and FDA resources. All three of the COVID-19 vaccines approved or authorized in the United States are highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 and the Delta variant.
