The Florida Department of Health in Hernando County is providing updated information on COVID-19 “booster” shots, which were authorized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Oct. 21.

The department seeks to help clarify recent developments regarding the eligibility and timing of those booster shots. The department also recommends that those seeking or considering a booster vaccine consult their health care provider before obtaining one to determine the best course of action for them.

For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 booster shots visit the CDC at CDC Booster Information 

For those considering a booster:

Q: Which vaccines are available for a booster shot?

A: Per a CDC announcement on Oct. 21, all three vaccines – Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson – are eligible to be given as a booster shot.

Q: Who is now eligible for a booster shot?

A: The CDC notes that people 65 and older or those 18 or older who live in long-term care settings, have underlying medical conditions, or face an increased risk to exposure or transmission because of occupational or institutional setting are eligible for a booster vaccine.

Q: When can someone get a booster?

A: Those eligible may obtain a booster as of right now, provided they meet conditions discussed below.

Q: How long do people have to wait after getting their initial vaccine?

A: Those who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are eligible for a booster shot after waiting at least six months from the completion of their initial series. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are eligible after waiting at least two months after they received their initial vaccination.

Q: What does “mix and match” mean?

A: Mix and match refers to the patient’s ability to select the vaccine of their choice for a booster, when available. Per the CDC’s recommendations, people may opt for the same brand that they received the first time or choose a different one.

Q: What if someone originally got the Pfizer vaccine?

A: According to the CDC, people who originally got the two-dose Pfizer vaccine series at least six months ago may receive a booster if they are 65 or older, or are 18 or older and live in a long-term care setting, have underlying medical conditions, or face a higher risk of infection because of their work or institutional setting.

Q: What if someone originally got the Moderna vaccine?

A: The CDC says that those who initially received the two-dose Moderna vaccine series at least six months ago may receive a booster if they are 65 or older, or are 18 or older and live in a long-term care setting, have underlying medical conditions, or face a higher risk of infection because of their work or institutional setting.

The Moderna booster is a half-dose of the original vaccine for healthy people. Individuals who are immunocompromised may receive a full-dose third vaccination after they wait at least one month from completing the original two-dose series.

Q: What if someone originally got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine?

A: Those who originally got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine may receive a booster if they are 18 or older and were vaccinated at least two months ago, according to the CDC.
