The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County (DOH-Miami-Dade) is offering appointments for the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson’s Jannsen COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC has expanded eligibility for the COVID-19 Booster vaccine for individuals 16 years of age and older, at least 6 months after completing the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine series, adults 18 years of age and older 6 months after completing the Moderna vaccine series or at least 2 months after receiving Johnson& Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. Appointments can be scheduled by visiting miamidade.gov/vaccine.
In addition, there are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.
For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:
• 65 years and older
• Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
• Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
• Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson Jannsen COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose, when available. Some individuals may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, while others may prefer to get a different booster. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots of COVID-19 vaccine.

All individuals under the age of 18 receiving a vaccine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must complete the COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form.
