Booster Shots

Consistent with prior recommendations for adults, CDC is recommending that moderately or severely immunocompromised 5–11-year-olds receive an additional primary dose of vaccine 28 days after their second shot. At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for children aged 5-11 details are at cdc.gov/media/releases/2022/s0104-Pfizer-Booster.html 

On March 29, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidance for eligible individuals to receive a second COVID-19 booster dose. Based on expanded FDA emergency use authorizations, groups who may be at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 may receive an additional booster dose at least four months after their first booster dose:

People 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised
People 50 years and older who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised
People 18-49 years old who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised and who received Janssen COVID-19 vaccine as both their primary series dose and booster dose

“COVID mRNA vaccines remain safe and highly effective in the prevention of severe infections and complications related to COVID-19. The CDC recommends that all eligible individuals stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations,” said Calaveras County Health Officer, Dr. René Ramirez.

“According to the CDC, those who received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine during the most recent Omicron surge were 94% more likely to avoid mechanical ventilation or death compared with 71% who had only received the primary series dose(s),” Dr. René Ramirez added.

Calaveras Public Health will begin offering second boosters beginning April 1 through its mobile vaccination team. Appointments are required. Eligible individuals are encouraged to schedule a free COVID-19 vaccine appointment by visiting myturn.ca.gov.

A first booster shot for an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) is recommended you are eligible:

  • If you completed a Pfizer series at least 5 months ago
  • If you completed a Moderna series at least 6 months ago
  • If you got a J&J vaccine at least 2 months ago
