CDC approves booster shots

Authored by Bukaty Companies on November 4, 2021

Amid the murkiness of the highly anticipated Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) rules regarding mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for private employers with 100-plus employees, uncertainty around potential booster shots is also circulating. 

Many individuals are unsure if they can or should elect to get a COVID-19 immunization booster shot. Consider the following fast facts on the third round of jabs.

  • At this time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization for booster doses applies to the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Booster shots come at no-cost regardless of immigration or health insurance status.
  • At this time individuals are still considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of a two-shot series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine series.
  • Individuals may “mix and match” booster shots for FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Six months after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccination, qualified individuals are eligible for a booster.
  • Those 18 years and older who received a Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccination are eligible for a booster dose two months after their shot
