COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters

COVID-19 vaccines continue to protect people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying—especially people who have received a booster.

Studies show protection against the virus and the ability to prevent infection with variants may decrease over time. The CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster after completing their primary COVID-19 vaccination series. Some people can receive two boosters.

Who can get a booster?

Who should get a single booster dose:

Everyone 12 years and older

Who should get a second booster dose:

Adults 50 years and older

When to get your booster:

At least 5 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series

When to get your second booster?

At least 4 months after your first booster

Which booster should you get?

Teens 12–17 years old may only get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster Adults 18 years and older should get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) for the first booster in most* situations

Which booster should you get?

The second booster must be an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna)

*Although mRNA vaccines are preferred for the first booster, J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine may be considered in some situations.

Memorial is currently only offering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine but other vaccine providers may be offering Moderna. For more information visit

COVID-19 vaccines for moderately or severely immunocompromised people

The CDC recommends that those with moderately to severely compromised immune systems may receive an additional 3rd dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Booster and timing for moderately or severely immunocompromised people:

Immunocompromised people ages 12 years and older should receive a total of 4 doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine to stay up to date. The 4 doses include a primary series of 3 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine + 1 booster of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least 3 months after 3rd dose.

You should talk to your healthcare provider about your medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you.

If you meet the criteria you can receive the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccines regardless of where you were vaccinated. It is advised that you bring your vaccination card.*

Frequently Asked Questions


What vaccine is Memorial Healthcare System administering?

Memorial Healthcare System is currently providing the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. A two dose series separated by 21 days.

If you meet the criteria for a third dose it is recommended you receive the same mRNA vaccine vaccine. If the mRNA vaccine product given for the first two doses is not available or is unknown, either mRNA COVID-19 vaccine product can be administered.

The vaccine is given in the deltoid arm muscle, similar to where a flu shot is given.

Is there a cost for the vaccines?

Vaccines are provided at no cost to recipients and insurance is not required. However we will request consent to verify insurance coverage; no fees will be billed to the patient.

Memorial is committed to administering the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals regardless of the vaccine recipient’s ability to pay COVID-19 vaccine administration fees. If you receive a bill for the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, or have any questions regarding billing, please contact 954-276-5501 or email us at

If we need a booster, are the vaccines working?
Yes. COVID-19 vaccines are working well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. However, public health experts are starting to see reduced protection over time against mild and moderate disease, especially among certain populations.
What are the risks to getting a booster?
Adults and children may have some side effects from a COVID-19 vaccine, including pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea. Serious side effects are rare, but may occur.
Am I still considered "fully vaccinated" if I don't get a booster?
Yes, the definition of fully vaccinated has not changed and does not include a booster. Everyone is still considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after the single-dose J&J/Janssen vaccine. Fully vaccinated, however, is not the same as having the best protection. People are best protected when they stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, which includes getting one booster when eligible.
Up to date include booster
It depends. Everyone ages 12 years and older is considered up to date until the time they are eligible for their first booster, which is 5 months after the second dose for Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, or two months after the J&J/Jansen vaccine. After this time period, they need to get 1 booster to be considered up to date. Getting a second booster is not necessary to be considered up to date at this time.
