Vaccine Brand Information

The Pfizer/Comirnaty, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are not interchangeable for your primary vaccination. If you receive a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna, your second dose must be the same brand. Booster doses can be of a different brand, for more information visit: Booster and Additional Dose.

  • Pfizer/Comirnaty
    • Administered in a two dose series, the second dose is given 21 days after the first dose. Doses can be delayed to reduce the risk of myocarditis: speak to your medical provider to learn more. It is fully authorized by the FDA for use in people 16 years or older, and the BioNTech vaccine is still approved for use in people 5 years or older under an EUA. A booster dose is recommended for everyone 5 years or older at least 5 months after completing the primary series. A second booster is authorized for people 50 and older or people ages 12-49 with an  immunocompromising condition. For more information, please review the Pfizer-BioNTech fact sheets.
  • Moderna/Spikevax
    • Administered in a two dose series, the second dose is given 28 days after the first dose. Doses can be delayed to reduce the risk of myocarditis: speak to your medical provider to learn more. It is fully approved by the FDA for use in people 18 years or older. It is authorized under an EUA for use in people 18 years old or older. A booster dose is recommended for everyone at least 5 months after completing the primary series. A second booster is authorized for people 50 and older or people 12-49 years with an immunocompromising condition. For more information, please review the Moderna/Spikevax fact sheet.
  • Johnson & Johnson
    • Administered in a single dose, and is authorized under an EUA for use in people 18 years old or older. A booster dose is recommended at least 2 months after completing the primary series. For those individuals who have only received a primary and a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson, a second booster is authorized: This booster must be a Pfizer or Moderna (mRNA) vaccine. For more information, please review the Johnson & Johnson fact sheet.
    • The FDA has limited the authorized use of this vaccine to individuals 18 years of age and older who cannot receive another authorized COVID-19 vaccine, or who choose the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because they would otherwise not receive a COVID-19 vaccine. This change is due to updated analyses on the risks of a rare clotting issue, though it was determined that the benefits of the vaccine still outweigh the risks when another vaccine is not an option.
