COVID-19 vaccine schedules and boosters

Experts agree that vaccination and boosters can help prevent you from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19 infection.

Each vaccine has its own protocols for maximum effectiveness. A healthcare provider will let you know which vaccine is best for you and when you need additional doses.

Over time, your immunity to COVID-19 can decrease. Booster shots provide an additional vaccine dose to remind your body to make antibodies, making you less likely to get sick if exposed to COVID-19 and its variants.

The schedule for booster shots and additional doses depends on the vaccine you received, health conditions, and other factors. Ask your healthcare provider when you should receive subsequent doses.
