Booster Shot

Content

A booster shot is a dose of a vaccine that is given to someone who is already vaccinated and received protection from that vaccination, but for whom the protection may have decreased over time. If you are moderately to severely immunocompromised, you should be receiving the additional third dose at this time, NOT a booster. Note that third vaccines and booster shots may have different timeframes and/or doses.
