Boosters Now Available for 12 and Older

MONTPELIER – Vermonters 12 to 15 years old can now receive a COVID vaccine booster shot. Boosters are highly effective at preventing serious illness from COVID-19.

Individuals are eligible for a booster two months after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine; six months after the second Moderna dose; and five months after the second Pfizer dose.

Sign up for a booster at that state site or a pharmacy website. If the state site does not allow sign up for a booster, register for a first shot and then tell the vaccinator this is a booster. Boosters are also available at the Berlin Mall in Berlin from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., every day of the week for a walk-in. To receive a booster, a vaccination card must be presented.
