More About COVID-19 Vaccines

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine approved for ages 12+ requires two doses that should be administered at least 21* days apart. The CDC also recommends that individuals receive a COVID-19 booster at least 5 months after their second dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine approved for ages 18+ requires two doses that should be administered at least 28* days apart. The CDC also recommends that individuals receive a COVID-19 booster at least 5 months after their second dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

Individuals who receive a first or second COVID-19 vaccine dose at the March 10 clinic may visit their local Hy-Vee Pharmacy to receive any additional COVID-19 vaccine doses within the designated timeline for their vaccine manufacturer.

**A 56-day interval between first and second doses may be optimal for some individuals ages 12+, especially for males ages 12 to 39. Data indicates that a longer time interval may help reduce the risk of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (swelling of tissue around the heart) for males ages 12 to 39. A shorter interval (21 days for Pfizer-BioNTech; 28 days for Moderna) between the first and second doses remains the recommended interval for: people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised; adults ages 65+; and others who need rapid protection due to increased concern about community transmission or risk of severe disease.
