COVID-19 Vaccination in Maine
All people age 5+ are now eligible for vaccination
Looking to bring a vaccination clinic to your community? To make vaccines more accessible, any community partner (school, employer, religious organization, community group, business, etc.) can organize and host a clinic. Fill out the application to get started.
Everyone 5 and older is now recommended to receive a COVID-19 booster shot, regardless of underlying medical conditions, given the following criteria:
- You completed the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series at least five months ago, OR
- You have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.
A second booster of an mRNA vaccine is available to those 50 and older, and those 12 and older with certain immunocompromising conditions, if it has been at least four months since your first booster dose. Individuals 12 and older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised should receive additional vaccine doses as part of the primary series and boosters, and should consult their physician about their eligibility for pre-exposure treatment to prevent COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and death.
Pfizer is the only FDA-authorized vaccine for people younger than 18, so it is the vaccine used as a booster for those age 5 through 17.
