  • People ages 12 and up who received Pfizer should get a booster five months after the second shot. 
  • People ages 18 and up who received Johnson & Johnson should get a booster two months after the single shot.

Facts About Vaccination

  • Everyone ages 5 and up can get vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • CDC recommends a preference for the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines over the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Johnson & Johnson remains available for people unable or unwilling to receive a mRNA vaccine.
  • Getting vaccinated helps prevent 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 September 2021 shows that unvaccinated Texans were 20 times more likely to die from COVID-19 and 13 times more likely to test positive.
    • Full vaccination is the best defense against COVID-19 and its variants and helps reduce the opportunity for new variants to emerge.
  • The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks, which are rare.
  • As with other routine vaccines, side effects may occur after vaccination. These are normal and should go away within a few days.
    • On the arm where you got the shot: Pain, redness, and swelling.
    • In the rest of our body: Tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea.
  • People should wear a mask indoors in public if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission to help protect yourself and others.
  • If you received a Pfizer (ages 5 and older) or Moderna (ages 18 and older) vaccine primary series and have a moderately to severely compromised immune system, you should receive an additional primary dose of the same vaccine at least 28 days after the second dose.
  • Everyone ages 16 and older can get a booster shot to improve protection that wanes over time.
    • People ages 18 and up who received Moderna should get a booster six months after the second shot.   
    • People ages 12 and up who received Pfizer should get a booster five months after the second shot. 
    • People ages 18 and up who received Johnson & Johnson should get a booster two months after the single shot.  
    • If the vaccine a person ages 18 and up originally received is not available, any of the three can be “mixed and matched” as a booster shot.
  • Breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people get COVID-19 are expected but fully vaccinated people are much less likely to get seriously sick.
  • To protect against the highly contagious Omicron variant, it’s important to use all tools available including vaccination (with booster), masking, social distancing, and testing.
  • People with symptoms of Covid-19 should get tested, regardless of vaccination status. It’s helpful to get tested if you recently participated in a gathering with people who do not live in your home.
