The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have recommended booster shots for everyone ages 18 and older.
You may now receive any brand of COVID-19 vaccine for your booster shot. Whether or not you should get a booster dose depends upon the vaccine you received previously, and how long ago you received your vaccine.
Pfizer and Moderna – at least six months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series
Johnson & Johnson – at least two months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is still the best way to avoid severe illness due to COVID-19, especially the highly contagious Delta variant. It might cause more severe illness (hospital stays and deaths) than previous strains, especially in unvaccinated persons. Unvaccinated people are eight times more likely to get sick and are 25 times more likely to be hospitalized or die.
Tryon is also scheduling appointments for those who are not yet fully vaccinated to receive their first or second dose appointments of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine.

Everyone ages 12 and older is eligible to receive the vaccine.
