On November 23, Kaiser Permanente informs the public that the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has recommended booster doses of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for all adults 18 years and older in alignment with the FDA’s expansion of the emergency use authorization for both vaccines.

For those who received their primary vaccination with either Moderna or Pfizer, a booster dose can be administered at least six months after full vaccination (following the second dose). As previously recommended by the CDC, for those 18 years and older who received their primary vaccination with the one-dose J&J/Janssen vaccine, a booster dose can be administered at least two months after the first vaccination.

Any of the COVID-19 vaccines can be used for booster vaccination, regardless of the vaccine product used for primary vaccination.
