Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot
CDC recommends that people in the following groups should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completion of their 2-dose Pfizer series:

  • People ages 65 years and older
  • Adults 18+ living in long-term care settings
  • People ages 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions

 

People who may receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine booster include:

  • People ages 18–49 with an underlying medical condition
  • People ages 18–64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission due to working or residing in certain settings
  • People can talk to their healthcare provider about whether getting a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot is appropriate for them.

 

Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccine
Vaccines are now widely available. In many cases, you do not need an appointment. The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status. Around 90% of people in the United States live within 5 miles of a COVID-19 vaccine location.

  • You should get a vaccination card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it.
  • Keep your vaccination card in case you need it for future use.
  • Consider taking a picture of your vaccination card as a backup copy.

 

Accessing a COVID-19 Vaccine If You Are Homebound
If you are homebound and need to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, contact your healthcare provider or your state or local health department. In many states, you may also dial 211 to connect to essential community services.

If you are not able to arrange a COVID-19 vaccination through your healthcare provider or through your state or local health department, try contacting groups that are advocates for people who are homebound:

The Aging Network at 1-800-677-1116

Search for services by ZIP code with the Eldercare Locator

Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) at 1-888-677-1199

Hotline for Medicare recipients at 1-800-633-4227 (TTY 1-877-486-2048)

You may also try contacting private home health services, personal aides, or organizations such as Meals on Wheels. Sometimes these groups can advocate for you or inform you about the services available in your area.

 

COVID Data Tracker Weekly Review
Weekly hospitalization rates from COVID-19 have recently increased for children ages 11 years and younger. Hospitalization rates among children and adolescents are at their highest levels since the start of the pandemic. These increases come as many schools across the country have returned to in-person learning. Masks are important for reducing the spread of COVID-19 among children in K–12 school settings. To keep kids safe, CDC recommends masks for all students, teachers, and staff while indoors, along with COVID-19 vaccination and testing, and physical distancing.
