Boosters and extra 3rd dose shots can help prevent illness or death due to COVID-19. The difference between boosters and third doses is the purpose of the shot for the person receiving it and the time when it’s given to you.
Like many vaccines, the COVID-19 shots may not work as well over time. When you get a booster shot, it helps keep you protected. If you got 2 Pfizer or 2 Moderna shots six months ago or more, you can now get a booster shot. If you got the Johnson and Johnson shot 2 months ago or more, you can also get a booster.
Extra 3rd Dose Shots
If you have cancer or some other health problems, your immune system may be weak. It can help to get an extra 3rd shot. You can get a 3rd shot as soon as 28 days after you completed your primary shot series.
