WI DHS Backs Boosters

WI DHS Backs Boosters

Wisconsin health officials are supporting the CDC’s call for COVID-19 booster shots. 

The Department of Health Services said Friday it encourages people to get the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson boosters the CDC green-lighted this week along with boosters of the Pfizer vaccine.  People 65 or older who have received the Moderna vaccine can get a booster six months after their second of the original two-dose regimen.  Boosters also are available to people age 18 and older if they have underlying health conditions or work or live in a setting that puts them at higher risk of contracting the virus. 

Anyone 18 or older who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can get a booster two months after receiving the initial single-shot dose.
