As the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is becoming available, you might be asking who is eligible?


Those who have been diagnosed with conditions that result in moderate to severe levels of immunocompromised.


Individuals with other, non-immunocompromised conditions (including but not limited to chronic disease or residing in group living arrangements considered high risk settings) are not recommended to receive an additional dose at this time.


3rd dose MUST be at least 28 days from the date the last dose was administered.


An additional dose is NOT being recommended for individuals who previously received the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.
