booster shot chart

 

Following federal guidance issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Gov. Tim Walz announced on Sept. 24 that Minnesota will begin administering Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots to Minnesotans who are eligible to receive one.

Minnesotans who got the Pfizer vaccine can receive a booster shot at least six months after their initial series based on CDC guidance: 

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster;
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster;
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster; and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting (e.g. frontline medical workers, teachers, and first responders) may receive a booster.

The list of medical conditions categorized as high-risk by the CDC is available here. Minnesotans with an underlying medical condition are encouraged to speak with their health care provider about whether a booster is right for them.
