Pfizer and Moderna booster shots can be administered at least 6 months after receiving the second dose of either one. Use the reference charts provided by L.A. County Public Health Department for more information based on age group and condition:

3rd dose of Pfizer and Moderna:

This is recommended for moderately to severely immunocompromised pts:

The third dose can be administered at least 28 days after the second dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine, meaning, if the original 2 series vaccine was Moderna then the third dose should be Moderna as well.

Vaccines for Kids

Why Should I Get My Child Vaccinated?

The COVID-19 vaccination is important because it is the best way to prevent COVID-19. The vaccines reduce the risk of becoming chronically ill and hospitalization from COVID-19. If your child contracts COVID-19, children will miss school, and often, parents have to miss work to care for their children. (Click here to view our Pediatric Vaccine Information Flyer).

Protecting Our Family, Friends & Community:

When we get vaccinated, we are not just protecting ourselves, but also our family, friends, and neighbors. This includes people who are not yet fully vaccinated and/or those at higher risk of getting severe disease if they get infected (such as older adults and those with certain medical conditions). The more people who get vaccinated, the less likely it is that COVID-19 will spread or that new variants of the virus will be created.

I Had COVID-19 – Do I Still Need to Get Vaccinated?

Even people who have had COVID-19 should get vaccinated because their natural immunity may not last long enough or be strong enough to fight off the virus. And you can get infected again which is why the vaccine is important for long-term protection. You can do your part to help stop the pandemic by getting vaccinated.

Are you Sure the Vaccines are Safe for Children?

COVID-19 Vaccines are safe for children and teens. Before recommending the COVID-19 vaccination for children, scientists conducted clinical trials to ensure safety. For all minors 6 months-17 years old: A consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian is required, and must be accompanied by their parent, legal guardian, or a responsible adult to receive the vaccine.
