The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends booster shots for qualifying individuals who are fully vaccinated with the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson vaccines.

The CDC’s recommendation allows eligible individuals to choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. You may elect to receive the booster shot from the initial vaccine or choose to get a different vaccine for the booster.

To receive a booster shot, you will need to bring a state issued ID (ex. driver’s license) and your COVID immunization card or a copy of the card.
