Booster Dose of COVID Vaccine

COVID-19 boosters are currently available through the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) health districts and participating providers. 

CDC recommends a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine for all persons aged 18 or older, at least 5 months after completion of a mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) primary series, or at least 2 months after receipt of the single primary dose Janssen vaccine. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Children and adolescents aged 5-17 years may receive a single booster dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 at least 5 months after completion of the primary series. At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 5 through 17.

Not all types of vaccines will be available at all sites. For information about COVID vaccines or to schedule a vaccination appointment visit dph.ga.gov/covid-vaccine or vaccinefinder.org.

DPH continues to stress the importance of vaccination for all Georgians aged 5 years and older. Vaccination is our best tool to protect lives and stop the spread of COVID-19 in our state.
