COVID-19 Vaccines

 

The COVID-19 vaccine is now approved and recommended for all individuals ages 5 and above. The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine currently available for children ages 5-17. Children under 18 must be accompanied to their appointment by a parent or legal guardian. Click the link below to schedule a vaccine.

Everyone ages 18 and older can get a booster shot. BJC is offering the Pfizer vaccine.

  • If you received Pfizer or Moderna as the initial series, the booster dose should be given at least 6 months after completing the series.
  • If you received Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), the booster dose should be given at least 2 months after the initial vaccination.

Individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose.

For people with a compromised immune system who received a primary series with Pfizer or Moderna, a third dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is recommended 28 days after completing the series, including for cancer or organ transplant patients.

Visit the CDC’s website for more information about booster doses and third doses.
