Additional and Booster Dose
Information

All About Doses

What’s the difference between an additional dose and a booster dose? Read below to find out!

Additional Dose

An Additional Dose is a vaccine dose administered after the primary series to people who likely did not obtain a protective immune response after the primary series. Persons are eligible for an additional dose 28 or more days after completing the primary series. The same vaccine that was used for the primary vaccine series should be used unless the primary vaccine product cannot be determined.

Booster Dose

A Booster Dose is a dose of vaccine administered after the primary series when the initial immune response to the primary vaccine is likely to have waned over time and is the same vaccine used for the primary vaccine series.  Persons who receive Moderna or Pfizer are eligible to receive a booster dose 6 months after the primary series.  Persons who receive Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) are eligible to receive a booster dose 2 months after the primary series.

Mix and Match Dose

A Mix and Match Dose is administered after the primary series when the initial immune response to the primary vaccine series is likely to have waned over time and is a different vaccine from the one that was used for the primary vaccine series. Persons who received Moderna or Pfizer are eligible to receive a booster dose 6 months after the primary series.  Persons who received Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) are eligible to receive a booster dose 2 months after the primary series.

Primary Series

The primary series refers to the 1st and 2nd dose of Moderna or Pfizer and the 1st dose of Janssen (Johnson and Johnson).
