Booster shots are now recommended for all individuals ages 16 years and older. Those who initially received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine can get their booster shot six months after their second dose. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can get a booster two months after their initial dose. Any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States can be given as booster shots, regardless of initial doses. Only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized as a booster for 16- and 17-year-olds.
A bivalent COVID-19 booster is now available for those 12 years of age and older., which provides improved protection against the newer Omicron SARS-CoV-2 variants currently circulating, known as BA.4 and BA.5.

PPG Statement for patients
At Parkview Physicians Group, we care about your health and would encourage our patients to be vaccinated for COVID-19 as they qualify to receive the vaccine. The vaccine is effective and safe. There are very few contraindications to receiving the vaccine and even those that have had COVID-19 should receive the vaccine. Severe reactions to the vaccine are very rare (about 11 per 1 million persons receiving the vaccine). Along with the CDC, PPG considers a history of the following to be a contraindication to vaccination with both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines:
- Severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components
- Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components (including polyethylene glycol [PEG])
- Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to polysorbate (due to potential cross-reactive hypersensitivity with the vaccine ingredient PEG)
- Monoclonal antibody infusion within the last 90 days
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that COVID-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant individuals who meet criteria for vaccination based on ACIP-recommended priority groups. Pregnant women may wish to discuss vaccination with their provider.
