1.) Updated booster guidelines

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week updated guidelines for booster shots to protect from COVID-19, for those who have already completed their primary vaccination series.

The CDC now recommends that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series.

The updated recommendation follows another change in the booster guidelines this week, which shortened the interval from six months to five months for people who received the Pfizer vaccine.

The recommended booster interval for people who received the J&J vaccine (two months) or the Moderna vaccine (six months) was not changed.

Boosters and initial vaccinations may be scheduled at https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov/.
