Important Information:


  • Anyone with a history of severe allergic reactions to vaccinations/medications should get their COVID vaccination at a medical clinic. 
  • After receiving a vaccination, be prepared to stay for 15 minutes so you can be observed for post-vaccination reactions.
  • March 2022 CDC update on recommendation for second dose of Pfizer or Moderna: 65 and older recommend 3-4 weeks after first dose, dependent on vaccine. Those 12-64 years old, particularly males 12-39 years old, can get their second dose up to 8 weeks after the first dose.

Who can get a booster vaccine right now?

All Minnesotans age 12 and older should get a booster shot. The timing of your booster shot depends on the vaccine you received for your primary vaccine series and if you were recommended to get an additional dose as part of your primary series (for those with certain immunocompromising conditions).

If you got Johnson & Johnson vaccine:

People age 18 and older should get a booster shot at least 2 months after their first dose.

If you got Moderna vaccine:

People age 18 and older should get a booster shot at least 5 months after their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine.

If you got Pfizer vaccine:

People age 12 and older should get a booster shot at least 5 months after their primary series of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

People with certain immunocompromising conditions

If you initially got Johnson & Johnson vaccine and then a recommended additional mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccine, you should get a booster dose 2 months after that mRNA dose.

If you got Moderna or Pfizer for your primary series of three doses, you should get a booster dose 3 months after that third dose.

Your provider may also talk to you about getting a second booster 4 months later (additional information below).

Certain people may get a second booster

Certain people may choose to get a second booster shot to enhance their protection.

  • People age 50 years and older.
  • People age 12-49 years who have certain immunocompromising conditions.
  • People age 18 and older who received Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine for their initial dose and booster dose.

The second booster shot should be given at least 4 months after the first booster and it should be either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Available evidence shows that a second booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine could improve protection against severe COVID-19, especially among the elderly and those with a very weak immune system. Additionally, a second booster could enhance protection for people who have received two doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Talk to your health care provider if you have questions about getting a second booster shot.
