COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

In the U.S., all persons 5 years of age and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Persons 18 years of age and older are eligible to receive the Moderna vaccine or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The FDA has issued emergency use authorization and the CDC has issued guidelines for booster shots of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to individuals 18 and older. Booster shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available to individuals 12 and older.

People who received Pfizer in this group may receive a booster shot no sooner than 5 months after their second vaccination. People who received Moderna may receive a booster shot no sooner than 6 months after their second vaccination. For detailed information about these recommendations, visit CDC.gov.

For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

Following CDC recommendations, University Health is currently offering 3rd dose shots of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for persons who are moderately to severely immunocompromised.

According to the CDC, this group includes some people receiving cancer treatments, organ and stem cell transplant recipients, persons with severe immunodeficiency or untreated HIV infection, or those taking medications that may suppress the immune system. These people may not have had a strong immune response to the vaccine, so the CDC recommends a third dose.

The CDC recommends immunocompromised persons receive their 3rd dose shot no sooner than four weeks after their 2nd dose.

The Pfizer vaccine is now fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people 16 years and older. The vaccine continues to be available to 5 - 11 and 12 -15 age groups under emergency use authorization. Please review FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine for more information about the approval process.

The Moderna, Johnson & Johnson vaccines continue to be available for people 18 and older through emergency use authorization. This authorization by the FDA follows a rigorous review of safety and effectiveness data gathered through large clinical trials.

Vaccines are cleared for Emergency Use Authorization after rigorous review by FDA based on scientific evidence about safety and effectiveness gathered through large clinical trials. 

Please review the Moderna Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)Pfizer Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) and Janssen Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) for detailed information about the vaccines.
