The FDA has granted booster shots for the Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty) vaccine under the Emergency Use Authorization. You are only eligible for a booster if:

– Your initial vaccine series was the Pfizer-BioNTech;

– Your last shot was 6+ months ago;

– You are age 65+ or

– You are 18 through 64 years of age at high risk of severe COVID-19 or

– You are 18 through 64 years of age whose frequent institutional or occupational exposure to COVID-19 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19 including severe COVID-19.

At this time the Hawaii State Department of Health‘s first priority will remain encouraging unvaccinated Hawai‘i residents to complete their primary vaccine series.

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson recipients are NOT eligible for a booster vaccine at this time. Before getting a COVID-19 booster shot, please speak with a licensed medical physician about the benefits and risks.
