Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)external icon expanded the use of a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose for certain people. CDC now recommends that everyone 18 years and older who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine two or more months ago receive a booster dose. For people who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, certain groups are now eligible for a booster dose at 6 months or more after their initial 2-dose series. This includes people ages 65 years and older, and people ages 18 years and older who live in long-term care settings, have underlying medical conditions, or live or work in high-risk settings.

Vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself. CDC’s COVID Data Tracker shows that in August 2021, people who were unvaccinated were 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than people who were fully vaccinated. People who were unvaccinated were 12 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 compared to people who were fully vaccinated. Everyone should get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they are eligible, including people who have already had COVID-19.

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continue to decline, but many parts of the country are still experiencing high levels of community transmission. CDC’s COVID Data Tracker shows that, as of October 28, 2021, 221 million people in the United States have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. 191 million people are fully vaccinated. More than 15 million people have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
