   Anyone age 50 or older may receive the second booster dose if four or more months have passed since they received the first booster dose .

   Anyone age 18 or older who received Johnson and Johnson vaccine as a first shot and a booster shot , who had the booster shot at least four months ago .

    “Additional booster doses provide added protection for those most vulnerable to COVID - 19 , ” said Health Director , Dr . Michelle Taylor , “I also want to take this opportunity to continue to promote the first and second vaccine doses , which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls the ‘primary series’ of COVID - 19 vaccinations . While boosters are important , it is even more important for those who are not yet vaccinated to get their first and second vaccine doses . ”
   In addition to the Health Department’s Immunization Clinic , COVID - 19 vaccinations are also free and widely available at pharmacies and other vaccination sites all over Shelby County . Go to
