COVID-19 Booster Doses

Who is eligible for a COVID-19 booster shot?

Which brand am I eligible for?

  • Individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose
    For example, Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine recipients 18 years of age and older may receive a single booster dose of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (half dose) or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, at least two months after receiving their primary Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • Pfizer & Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccines are now heterologous (or “mix and match”).  If you received one of these two versions for your first two doses, you can get the same or other version as a 3rd dose.
    New York State DOH recommends that you only change vaccines if one or the other is not available in your area. If there is availability, it is preferred to get a booster of the originial series you have completed.

How do I get a COVID-19 booster shot?

  • Community providers including pharmacies and primary care providers have appointments and walk-in availability.
  • Booster doses are also available at Dutchess County clinics, find dates, locations, and time under the “Appointments” section of this page.
  • Consult with your physician to discuss the benefits of an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine and to request documentation of your eligibility as this may be required by some vaccination sites.
