You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and got the most recent booster dose recommended for you by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevetion (CDC).

  • If you have completed your primary series—but are not yet eligible for a booster—you are also considered up to date.
  • If you become ill with COVID-19 after you received all COVID-19 vaccine doses recommended for you, you are also considered up to date. You do not need to be revaccinated or receive an additional booster.

COVID-19 vaccine recommendations are based on three things:

  1. Your age
  2. The vaccine you first received, and
  3. The length of time since your last dose

People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.

For Healthcare Workers: Learn more about COVID-19 vaccine schedules.

For help determining whether you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, reference a CDC web tool by navigating to the section labeled "Find Out When You Can Get Your Booster."
