Currently, minors ages 12-17 are able to get a first booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine at least 5 months after completing their primary COVID-19 vaccination series. The CDC recommends that everyone ages 12 and older get a booster.


Minors ages 12-17 who are moderately or severely immunocompromised can choose to receive a 2nd booster at least 4 months after their first booster. Minors ages 12–17 years may only get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster.
