The County is Scheduling Booster Shots for All COVID-19 Vaccines

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is now scheduling booster shots for the Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J (Jansen) COVID-19 vaccines following FDA and CDC approval for people who meet the eligibility criteria.

Pfizer & Moderna
For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot 6 months after their initial series:

Individuals who received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as their primary COVID-19 series must wait at least six calendar months (not 180 days) to receive a booster dose. The booster dose can be either the Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J vaccine. Anyone who received the Pfizer or Moderna series must meet the high risk criteria outlined above to receive a booster shot. Individuals will sign a self-attestation form during their appointment to confirm they meet these criteria.

Johnson & Johnson
People 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson single shot COVID-19 vaccine must wait at least two calendar months (not 8 weeks) to receive a booster dose. The booster dose can be either the Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J vaccine.

Registration Information
Booster appointments can be made online at www.montcopa.org/COVID-19vaccine or by calling (833) 875-3967 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 and 4:30 p.m. Appointments will begin Monday, October 25. Due to recent guidance, anyone requesting a booster will be able to choose which vaccine they want when they arrive onsite for their appointment. All three COVID-19 vaccines are offered at all Montgomery County Vaccination Clinics. There is no cost to receive the vaccine.
