Updated booster shots are available to anyone 12 and older who had their last COVID-19 shot at least two months ago. A booster shot is also available to anyone ages 5-11 who had their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 5 months ago.
We strongly encourage all eligible people to get a booster shot. The updated booster is designed to specifically target current strains of the infectious Omicron variant. It provides new protection that may have decreased since your previous COVID-19 vaccine.

Can I mix-and-match my booster shot?
Yes, if you are eligible for a vaccine booster, you can choose which vaccine you get. The only eligible booster shots are the Pfizer and Moderna boosters.
Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccines for all people who are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to get pregnant now or in the future.
The CDC also says pregnant people with COVID-19 have an increased risk of severe illness compared with non-pregnant people. Pregnant people with COVID-19 also might be at increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm birth, compared with pregnant individuals without COVID-19. There is no evidence that fertility problems are a side effect of any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines.
I am breastfeeding or plan to be soon. Will the COVID-19 vaccine affect the safety of my breast milk?
The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine report that there is no reason to believe that these vaccines affect the safety of breast milk. The COVID-19 vaccines do not contain the virus, so there is no risk of infecting your baby. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines contain mRNA, but because mRNA is fragile, it is very unlikely that any part of the vaccine gets into breast milk.
When we have an infection or get a vaccine, our bodies make antibodies to fight the infection. Antibodies can pass into breast milk and then to the baby, and may help prevent infections.
COVID-19 Vaccine Safety
Are the COVID-19 vaccines safe?
Yes, the vaccines are safe and effective. The FDA carefully reviews all safety data from clinical trials and authorizes emergency vaccine use only when the expected benefits outweigh potential risks. Vaccines must complete three phases of testing through clinical trials involving thousands of patients to receive Emergency Use Authorization.
The clinical trials included tens of thousands of people across gender, age, race and ethnicity. The Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines showed effective results with only mild to moderate side effects. The data was also made public. This allowed our team of experts to review the results, confirming it is safe.

Why should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available. The combination of getting vaccinated and following CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.
Getting a vaccine is important for your own health because it will help keep you from getting COVID-19, and a vaccine is a safer way to help build protection against the virus.
Why should my child get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Children are still at risk, and it’s hard to predict which kids infected with COVID-19 will develop severe symptoms that could lead to missing school or, in rare cases, hospitalization. Research on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 5 through 11 has shown that it is safe; no new safety problems were found in the studies.
