Important update on COVID-19 vaccine booster shots
If you previously got 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine if you fall into one of these groups:

You’re 65 and older,You’re 18+ and have certain underlying medical conditions, or
You’re 18+ and work or live in a high-risk setting.

You can get your booster shot at least 6 months after you complete your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
The booster shot can help strengthen and prolong your protection against COVID-19.

Learn More: Visit CDC.gov for more information on other groups already vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine that may be eligible for a booster shot.

Remember: Medicare covers a Pfizer vaccine booster shot at no cost to you.
