Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean that the Pfizer vaccine was approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?

Pfizer received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its COVID-19 vaccine - this means that the original emergency use authorization (EUA) that was in place for the public health emergency has been superseded by regular FDA approval. The FDA approval is for patients 16 and older. Minors between 12 and 16 can still receive the Pfizer vaccine under the EUA.

 

I am immunocompromised--why do I need an additional dose. When can I get mine?

The FDA and CDC recently recommended an additional dose of mRNA vaccine for those with certain conditions that result in moderate to severe compromised immunity, and provided a very specific list of conditions; including active treatment for cancer, organ transplant recipients, those receiving certain stem cell transplant, those with advanced or untreated HIV infection, people being treated with high-dose corticosteroids, and those being treated with certain immunosuppressive drugs and/or cancer chemotherapeutic agents.

 

I heard the CDC is recommending booster shots for everyone who got the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. When can I get mine?

The Centers for Disease Control have circulated information that suggests vaccinated individuals should receive another booster of COVID-19 vaccine 8 months after being fully vaccinated; however, a formal recommendation or authorization from the FDA for a booster has not been announced yet. 

 

If we need a booster dose, does that mean that the vaccines aren’t working?

COVID-19 vaccines are working very well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death, even against the widely circulating Delta variant.  However, with the Delta variant, public health experts are starting to see reduced protection against mild and moderate disease. For that reason, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is planning for a booster shot so vaccinated people maintain protection over the coming months.
