CDC Expands Booster Shot Eligibility and Strengthens Recommendations for 12-17 Year Olds

Vaccine Close Up - COVID19

The CDC now recommends that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series.

Data shows that COVID-19 boosters help broaden and strengthen protection against Omicron and other SARS-CoV-2 variants. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices' (ACIP) reviewed the available safety data following the administration of over 25 million vaccine doses in adolescents; COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 12-17.
