*Scott County Public Health is following guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) about COVID-19 vaccines, including booster shots and third doses. If you have questions about which option is right for you, check with your medical provider or contact us at 952-818-3730.
Third Doses for Immunocompromised Individuals
A third dose is different from a booster shot. The CDC now recommends that individuals with specific high-risk conditions receive a third full dose of COVID vaccine to maximize protection. See which conditions apply and consult with your provider to see if an additional dose is right for you.
Boosters for General Public
The current vaccines continue to provide highly effective protection against COVID-19, but booster doses will help maximize their effectiveness.
Who can get a booster dose right now? (Updated 12/14/21)
According to MDH, all Minnesotans ages 16 and older can now get a booster shot. The timing depends on the vaccine you initially received:
- Pfizer & Moderna Recipients 18+: You should wait until 6 months after your second shot to get a booster.
- Pfizer Recipients 16+: You should wait until 6 months after your second shot to get a booster. (Note: Since only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for ages 16 & 17, teens must get a Pfizer booster.)
- Johnson & Johnson Recipients 18+: You should wait until 2 months after your initial shot to get a booster.
I heard I can mix-and-match my booster shot. Is this true? (Updated 12/14/21)
Yes, health officials also authorized “mixing and matching” COVID-19 vaccine boosters for adults 18 and older. This means anyone eligible for a booster can get any of the three currently authorized or approved vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson) – regardless of what they received for their primary series. Source: MDH - About COVID-19 Boosters
I received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Will you offer J&J boosters?
At this time, we don't plan to offer J&J boosters. Instead, we invite J&J recipients to take a Moderna or Pfizer booster, since mix-and-match options are approved.
