COVID boosters: When am I eligible to get another shot?


CLEVELAND (WJW) — With the FDA’s recent authorization of the Pfizer booster shot for certain Americans, you may be wondering when you’re eligible.

Even as recent as Friday, the FDA announced they gave a recommendation for Emergency Use Authorization of Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot COVID-19 booster, saying they should be offered at least two months after immunization.

J&J says this recommendation is for anyone aged 18 and over.

Soon, the CDC is expected to discuss the use of boosters and provide a potential recommendation on October 21.

After booster doses of Pfizer’s vaccine began last month for people at high risk of COVID-19, the FDA advisory panel has recommended the same approach for Moderna recipients.
