For individuals who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after your 2nd dose:
People 65 and older.
Long-term care residents.
People 18 and older with underlying medical conditions.
People 18 and older who work or live in high-risk settings.
For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, booster shots are recommended for those who are 18 and older AND were vaccinated 2 or more months ago.
Both the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention support individuals who would like to receive a booster dose that is a different vaccine type than they originally received for their primary series if they choose. This type of mixing and matching is now allowable based on CDC recommendations.
To find available vaccination clinics statewide, residents can visit ct.gov/covidvaccine and enter their ZIP code. Residents can also visit the Connecticut Department of Public Health’s main COVID-19 Vaccine Portal for the most up-to-date information on vaccine distribution in the state.
