COVID-19: Basic Information Updated

Posted

In the last couple of weeks I have been encountering a lot of confusion (mostly general public but also a few HCPs who are not using the info on a daily basis) about who is eligible for which vaccines and boosters. I'm sure the majority here know this info but I am posting it just in case some don't, and also so that we can help lay persons find up-to-date info. Remind people to pay attention to the dates of information they find on the internet. For example, one can easily find press release/newsroom type posts and articles from the CDC and mainstream media which are no longer the latest information.

Everyone Ages 18 and Older Should Get a Booster Shot

General Eligibility:

  • 6 months after 2nd Moderna or Pfizer immunization
  • 2 months after 1-dose J&J immunization

Most Children and All Teens Can Get COVID-19 Vaccines  (Ages 5+)

(Reported yesterday) Pfizer will be seeking FDA authorization for boosters for 16 & 17 year olds
