Who is eligible for booster shots?
Examples of eligible candidates:
- If you are 18+ and received your Pfizer or Moderna vaccination series (both shots) at least six months ago and live or work in a high-risk setting, which includes education staff and schools.
- If you are 18+ and received your Johnson & Johnson vaccine two or more months ago.
If you received your second dose after May 9, then you will not be eligible for your booster yet.
Which booster shot is right for me?
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive for their booster dose, as the CDC recommendations have now expanded to allow mix and match dosing for booster shots. This means you can choose any of the vaccine manufacturers for your booster shot, regardless of what you received for your initial vaccine. Consult with your medical provider if you have any questions about the best option for you.
Where can I get my booster shot?

Do I need to let Loyola know when I get my booster shot?
