Who Is Eligible for a COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot?

Boosters

Kitsap Public Health District is partnering with the Kitsap County Emergency Operation Center and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health to offer COVID-19 vaccinations to the Kitsap County community in Washington State.

Booster doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine are recommended for certain at-risk groups.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup recommend:

  • People 65 years and older should receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer primary series.
  • Residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer primary series.
  • People aged 50 to 64 with certain underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer primary series.
  • People 18 to 49 who are at high risk for severe COVID-19 due to certain underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • People aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

(There is no recommendation on booster doses for Moderna at this time.)
