Third doses and booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines

You may have heard about “third doses” and “booster shots” for people who got a COVID-19 vaccine. The main difference between these two shots is who gets them and why.

A BOOSTER SHOT is for individuals age 18 or older who already got their first two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or received one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Their bodies probably created enough antibodies to protect them, but health officials believe that their immunity may go down over time. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna booster shots should be at least 6 months after getting the 2nd dose. Booster shots for Johnson & Johnson should be at least 2 months after the one dose.

Please note: The CDC recommends that all fully vaccinated individuals over the age of 18 should get a booster shot.

A THIRD DOSE is for specific people who have weakened immune systems. These people have already received two doses of either Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. However, their bodies may not have created enough of an immune response to protect them from getting COVID-19. An additional 3rd dose of vaccine at least 28 days after completing their 2nd dose will help get them to a good immunity level. This group includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress their immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medicine to suppress their immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other medicine that may suppress their immune response

If you are a current patient and you want to make an appointment for either a third dose or a booster shot, call (310) 664-7894.
