Booster Shots Available

Federal health officials have now authorized Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots for seniors and high-risk adults who received their second Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago.

Minnesotans who got the Pfizer vaccine can now get a Pfizer booster at least six months after their initial series according to the following guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster;
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster;
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster; and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting (e.g. frontline medical workers, educators, child care personnel, and first responders) may receive a booster.

Minnesotans with an underlying medical condition can speak with their health care provider about whether a booster is right for them. The list of medical conditions categorized as high-risk by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is available here.

Do not get a booster shot before you are eligible. While it will be important to get your booster shot, you should only get it when it is recommended, not earlier. A booster given too early may not be as effective at increasing protection.

Research shows that the COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe illness and death. While boosters increase protection, people who are fully vaccinated continue to have good protection against severe illness and hospitalization, even once it starts to decline.
