Eligibility Details from Texas Department of State Health Services:

On October 20, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made amendments to the Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for both Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines that expanded the use of a booster dose in eligible populations. 

On October 21, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen). Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a “mix-and-match” booster dose. 

Individuals who received the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are eligible for a booster shot 6 months after completion of the primary series if they fall into one of the following groups:

Note: The Moderna COVID-19 booster dose is half of the dose that is administered for the primary series dose.

Booster shots are also recommended for individuals 18+ who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine two or more months ago.
