October 29, 1pm- 5pm

Vaccine: Pfizer

Everyone 12 years and older is eligible.

CDC recommends moderately to severely immunocompromised people consider receiving an additional (third) dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) at least 28 days after the completion of the initial 2-dose mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series. Different medical conditions can result in widely varying degrees of immunosuppression. Your medical provider is best able to assess your status.

There are now booster recommendations for all three COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States (Pfizer-BioNTech; Moderna; Janssen/Johnson & Johnson). On October 21, 2021, the CDC and New York State Department of Health recommend that certain individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after their initial series get their “booster dose.” These individuals include those who are 65 years and older and individuals who are 18 and older who live in long-term care settings, have underlying medical conditions, or who work or live in high-risk settings. Additionally, booster doses are recommended for individuals 18 and older who received the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at least two months ago. Your booster dose should be given using the same vaccine type received for your initial vaccine series. If the same vaccine type used for your initial series is not readily available, or a different COVID-19 vaccine is desired, any FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine can be used for the booster dose, according to FDA and CDC guidance.

  • The following group should receive the booster:
    • Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (J&J): New Yorkers 18 years and older who received the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at least two months ago.
    • Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna: New Yorkers 65 years and older or residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 primary series. New Yorkers aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna primary series. 
  • The following groups may receive the booster:
    • New Yorkers aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna primary series. Consult your regular health care provider.
    • New Yorkers aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna primary series.
