You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible. Vaccine recommendations are different depending on your age, the vaccine you first received, and time since last dose, as shown below.

You may reference a CDC web tool to help determine whether you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines based on current recommendations. Scroll down to "Find Out When You Can Get Your Booster."

Adults ages 18 or older

Pfizer-BioNTech

Primary Series: 2 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech given 3–8 weeks apart. [1]

 1 1 Talk to your healthcare or vaccine provider about the timing for the 2nd dose in your primary series.

  • Anyone wanting protection due to high levels of community transmission, people ages 65 years and older, or people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19, should get the second dose of:
