Who Needs an Additional COVID-19 Vaccine?

CDC recommends that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

For most vaccinated people, a 3rd dose is not yet recommended or authorized but might be in September or October for the other people who received their second dose of Moderna or Pfizer at least 8 months earlier.

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
