COVID-19 Vaccines

People with moderately or severely weakened immune systems are especially vulnerable to COVID-19.  They are more likely to get COVID-19 than people with normal immune systems. And if they get infected, they are more likely to get seriously ill and to spread the virus to others. In addition, some people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised don’t build enough protection from the standard vaccine schedule. It is recommended they get more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine plus getting some of those doses at shorter time intervals.

Who is considered moderately or severely immunocompromised?

  • People age 5+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should receive a COVID-19 vaccine primary series as soon as possible. This means 3 doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine - OR - one dose of J&J vaccine and one dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
  • Those age 12+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should get a booster dose after their primary series. The type of additional and/or booster dose that is recommended depends on which vaccine you got for your primary series. In addition, you may get a second booster dose at least 4 months after your first booster dose.
