Who is eligible to get a booster?

All residents aged 50 and older or individuals who are younger with certain medical conditions may now access a second COVID-19 booster. On March 29th, the CDC recommended that certain immunocompromised individuals and all individuals over the age of 50 get an additional booster dose at least 4 months after their first booster. CDC recommendations allow for mixing and matching of different COVID-19 booster doses, and eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. For more information on eligibility, visit www.mass.gov/vaccine
