Per the City of New York:
Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated people 12 and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series.
We recommend a booster shot for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.
Your booster shot can be any of the three authorized or approved vaccines. We recommend you get either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for your booster shot, unless you are unable to do so. If you have questions, talk to your health care provider or call 311. People ages 12 to 17 can only receive the Pfizer booster shot.
