COVID-19 and Vaccinations

Vaccines help people develop immunity to a virus or other germ. A vaccine introduces a less harmful part of that germ into a person’s body. The body’s immune system develops antibodies that fight that particular germ and keep the person from getting sick. Later, if the person encounters that germ again, their immune system can recognize it and remember how to fight it off.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get more than one updated COVID-19 booster?

No. Currently, CDC recommends one updated COVID-19 booster dose: (1) For everyone aged 5 years and older. (2) For children aged 6 months–4 years who completed the Moderna primary series.

Am I still considered “fully vaccinated” if I don’t get a booster?

Yes, you are fully vaccinated even if you haven’t gotten your booster yet. The definition of fully vaccinated does not include a COVID-19 booster. Fully vaccinated, however, is not the same as having the best protection. People are best protected when they stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, which includes getting a booster when eligible.

Does the definition of “up to date” include boosters?

Yes. You are up to date if you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC.

What are the risks to getting a booster?

Adults and children may have some side effects from a COVID-19 vaccine, including pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea. Serious side effects are rare, but may occur.

How long does protection from a COVID-19 vaccine last?

Scientists are monitoring how long COVID-19 vaccine protection lasts. COVID-19 vaccines work well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. However, public health experts are seeing decreases in the protection COVID-19 vaccines provide overtime, especially for certain groups of people. Due to this, CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group.
