On October 22, 2021, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practice (ACIP) voted to recommend the Moderna 50 μg (half dose) booster dose for adults 18 and older at least 6 months after the second dose of the primary series for the same risk groups recommended for the Pfizer booster: “A single COVID-19 vaccine booster dose is recommended greater than or equal to 6 months after completion of an mRNA primary series, in the same risk groups for whom CDC recommended a booster of Pfizer-BioNTech, under FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization.” In a second vote, the ACIP voted to recommend the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson booster dose for all adults 18 and older who received the J&J primary series at least 2 months after the initial dose: “A single COVID-19 vaccine booster dose is recommended for persons aged 18 years and older, greater than or equal to 2 months after receipt of the initial Janssen dose, under the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization.”
There is now booster recommendation for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendation now allows for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
The COVID-19 vaccine is also available at Dillons, Walmart, Walgreens, The Hutchinson Clinic, and the Medicine Shoppe.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free to any Reno County resident, regardless of citizen status or insurance. To view vaccine availability at
