COVID-19 Booster Shot Interval Shortened, Eligibility Expands, and 3rd Primary Dose for
Immunocompromised Children 5 to 11 Years Old Available
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated recommendations for administering the COVID-19 vaccine, to include:
  • Shortening the interval for when eligible people can receive a booster dose, from 6 months to 5 months after completing their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series. This means that eligible people can receive an mRNA booster dose 5 months after completing their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series. The booster dose interval recommendations for people who received their Johnson & Johnson/Janssen (2 months) or Moderna (6 months) has not changed.   
  • Expanding the COVID-19 boosters to adolescents ages 12 to 15 years old. At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech booster vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 12 to 15 years old.
  • Authorizing a third primary series dose for certain immunocompromised children aged 5 to 11 years old. The CDC is recommending moderately or severely immunocompromised 5 to 11 year olds receive an additional dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 vaccine to complete the primary series, with a total of three doses. The additional dose should be spaced 28 days after the second dose. At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for children 5 to 11 years of age.
