As of October 21, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend a booster dose of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine to people ages 65 and older and other vulnerable Americans.
The following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:
- People 65 years and older
