Booster shots are now available for many age groups, and if eligible, you should highly consider getting one. If you previously had COVID-19, a booster shot can still help prevent reinfection. If you have not had COVID-19, a booster shot will continue to protect you against coronavirus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting a booster five months after the second dose of an mRNA vaccine series (Pfizer or Moderna) and two months after the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. When the time comes for your COVID-19 booster shot, our team at Mira can help you find an appointment.
