NEW: Who Can Get a Pfizer Booster?

COVID-19 booster doses are available to some recipients of the Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months after their second dose, based on the following recommendations as of September 2021:

Three types of people that SHOULD get the booster:

  • People 65 years and older
  • Residents in long-term care facilities
  • People 50-64 years old with underlying medical conditions.

Two types of people who MAY get the booster:

  • People 18-49 years old with underlying medical conditions, based on their individual benefits & risks
  • People 18-64 years old who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting based on their individual benefits & risks.

Level of COVID-19 Transmission: High

Based on updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last week, the Fairfax Health Department recommends that everyone, including individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask in public indoor settings. 

As the number of COVID-19 cases has continued to increase with the spread of the Delta variant, this recommendation is based on the Fairfax Health District moving from moderate level of COVID-19 transmission to substantial transmission. Learn more about this and other preventative steps you should take.
