CLEVELAND (WJW) — Now that COVID-19 booster shots are open to anyone aged 18 and older, drug stores are announcing how you can get yours.

The Centers for Disease Control say that any adult who completed their Pfizer or Moderna primary vaccine series at least six months ago, or received a Johnson & Johnson dose at least two months ago, can now get a Pfizer, Moderna or J&J COVID-19 vaccine booster.

The expansion makes tens of millions more Americans eligible for the extra shot. Teen boosters aren’t yet under discussion, and kid-sized doses of Pfizer’s vaccine are just now rolling out to children ages 5 to 11.
