Citing the rapid spread of the latest COVID-19 Omicron variant, public health officials are imploring fully vaccinated people to obtain their booster shot for added protection against the virus that has killed more than 5.3 million people worldwide and upward of 800,000 in the U.S. alone since early 2020.

Those who received their second dose of the two-dose mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) at least six months ago or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson shot at least two months ago should be making appointments to receive their boosters as soon as possible. Vaccinations and boosters are free.

Fully vaccinated adults 18 and older are eligible to receive a booster shot of one of the three authorized vaccines: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson, according to the U.S. enters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Teenagers over 16 are also eligible for the Pfizer booster, though they need a signed consent form from a guardian who needs to be present at the time of the shot.

If you live in Miami-Dade County, there are dozens of locations where you can obtain your booster, a number of which don't require an appointment and accept walk-ins or drive-bys.

Over the next three weeks, Miami-Dade County is offering pop-up vaccination and booster sites across the county, though their dates and hours vary depending on the location.

Generally, COVID-19 booster shots are available wherever COVID-19 vaccines are being administered, but some sites may only offer select vaccine brands.

Anyone who is homebound or has issues getting to a vaccination or booster site can have a healthcare professional come to their home to administer the shot for free by calling 888-201-5490 or emailing [email protected].
