Overdue Second Doses

Contact our overdue line for questions about scheduling your second dose after the 42 day recommended timeframe.

Additional Doses & Booster Shots

Additional Doses

People with moderately or severely compromised immune systems are recommended to receive an additional dose of the same mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) at least 28 days after their second dose. 


Booster Shots

All adults who are fully vaccinated are eligible for a booster shot. People who received Moderna or Pfizer can get a booster six months after the second shot and those who received Johnson & Johnson can get a booster two months after the single shot.

If the vaccine a person originally received is not available, any of the three can be “mixed and matched” as a booster shot.

Facts About Vaccination

  • Everyone ages 5 and up is eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccine.  
  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and key to getting our lives closer to normal.  
  • Getting vaccinated prevents serious illness, hospitalization, and death; it also helps reduce the spread of COVID-19. 
  • Since COVID-19 vaccination began, nearly all Texas COVID-19 deaths are among people who are not fully vaccinated.  
  • A Texas Department of State Health Services study shows that in September 2021, unvaccinated people in Texas were 20 times more likely to die from COVID-19 and 13 times more likely to test positive. 
  • COVID-19 vaccines have undergone – and continue to undergo – the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. 
  • Like any vaccine, COVID-19 vaccines cannot stop 100 percent of infections, but they do protect most people.  
  • While rare, breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people get COVID-19 are expected but fully vaccinated people are much less likely to get seriously sick.  
  • Although most people with COVID-19 get better within weeks of illness, some experience post-COVID conditions (long haul symptoms) that can last months. 
  • Data show Delta is different than past versions of the virus: it is much more contagious, and some vaccinated people can get Delta in breakthrough infection and may be contagious.  
  • Full vaccination is the best defense against COVID-19 and its variants, like Delta and helps reduce the opportunity for new variants to emerge.  
  • Wearing a mask in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status, can help protect you and everyone close to you. CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. 
  • An additional dose intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their initial vaccine series. A booster dose is given to people when the immune response to a primary vaccine series is likely to have waned over time.  
  • People with moderately or severely compromised immune systems should receive an additional dose of the same mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) at least 28 days after their second dose. 
  • All adults who are fully vaccinated are eligible for a booster shot. People who received Moderna or Pfizer can get a booster six months after the second shot and those who received Johnson & Johnson can get a booster two months after the single shot. 
  • If the vaccine a person originally received is not available, any of the three can be “mixed and matched” as a booster shot. 
  • The Pfizer vaccine has full FDA approval for people ages 16 and older and emergency authorization for people ages 5-15.  
  • Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for emergency use in people ages 18 and older.
