As of last week, according to the CDC website, everyone age 18 and older can now get a booster shot. The good news is that Walgreens and CVS seemed quite prepared for this announcement, because many of their stores throughout the nation are offering COVID-19 boosters for those who are eligible.

WHEN SHOULD I GET MY BOOSTER?

at least 6 months after completing your 1st and 2nd COVID-19 vaccination series (Pfizer or Moderna)

at least 2 months after completing your series if you got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO GET THE COVID BOOSTER?

anyone age 18 and older who have already completed the first 2 doses of the COVID vaccine

CAN I CHOOSE WHICH COVID BOOSTER SHOT I GET?

According to the CDC,

 you may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. 

If you are interested in receiving your COVID-19 booster, you may visit either CVS or the Walgreens website to find out if they are available here in the 432.
