  • People aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their primary series.

When a patient signs up for a booster shot, they will be asked to provide the manufacturer and date of their last COVID-19 shot. You can sign up for an appointment at CVS.com.
