Find your COVID-19 vaccine

Third doses and booster dose news

Booster approval process: The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has been recommended by the FDA advisory panel and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice. After CDC approval on the recommendation, booster doses will be approved for some Alaskans.

Third doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for moderately to severely immunocompromised are currently authorized and we encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider if you are unsure if you fall in this category.

Today the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended a single Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster dose at least six months after a second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the following groups:

  • Persons aged 65 years and older and long-term care facility residents
  • Persons aged 18 through 64 years with underlying medical conditions
  • Persons based on individual benefit and risk who are aged 18 through 49 years with underlying medical conditions

We are awaiting CDC approval of the recommendation before starting booster doses in Alaska. The Pfizer booster doses are only for people who received the initial 2-dose Pfizer series, with their second dose at least six months ago. If you have only received one Pfizer dose, you can still get your second dose. If you received a Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, there is not yet enough information to recommend a booster dose.
