Give your COVID-19 vaccination protection a boost for the holidays

More people are expected to travel and spend time indoors with friends and family this holiday season compared with last year. But COVID-19 is still with us. And the risk of getting the virus is higher for everyone because the Delta variant is twice as contagious as earlier variants.

To stay safer this winter, get your COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can. If you’re already fully vaccinated, get your booster shot as soon as you’re eligible.

Everyone age 18 and older can now get a COVID-19 vaccine booster

  • 6 months after your 2nd dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine; or
  • 2 months after your single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccines continue to work very well at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death, including from the Delta variant. A booster shot is an extra dose that helps keep up protection.
