• Ages 18 and older with underlying medical conditions

• Ages 18 and older at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting

The Moderna booster shot is also available, but is only recommended at this time for those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised, such as those who are organ transplant recipients, on immunosuppressant medications or under active treatment for cancer, and who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine within the past 28 days.
