Commonwealth of Massachusetts Announces COVID-19 Boosters Available for Everyone Age 18 or Older

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts announced that everyone age 18 or older who received Pfizer or Moderna at least 6 months ago or Johnson & Johnson at least 2 months ago can now get any booster.

People ages 5-17 can get the Pfizer vaccine. People age 18 or older can get any vaccine.

Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 boosters are now available to anyone ages 18 and older. You’re eligible for a booster if:

  • Pfizer & Moderna: It’s been at least 6 months since your second dose

You can mix and match vaccines. You do not need to get the same vaccine brand for your booster as your original COVID-19 vaccination.
