Boosters! Boosters! Boosters!

Johnson & Johnson and Moderna received positive news today when the Western States Scientific Security Review Working Group (WSSSRW) officially recommended them for boosters in eligible groups. As recently as yesterday, CDC Director Dr Rochelle P. Walensky also sign on the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson recommendation for booster injections of the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices).

Booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are already available at commercial pharmacies and public health vaccination sites in Marin County. Visit to find a vaccination point near you.

The current WSSSRW recommendation, with approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is as follows:


People who completed a Moderna vaccination series at least 6 months ago are eligible for a booster dose if:

Johnson & johnson

Booster shots are recommended for people who:

  • Be at least 18 years of age or over; and
  • They received their Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

Mix and match

The working group also endorsed the strategy known as “mixing and matching” where those eligible for boosters can choose one of the three brands available (Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna).

How are vaccine recommendations implemented in California?

Below are the necessary steps that potential vaccines must go through to be distributed in the state of California. The timing of each step of the final approval process tends to vary. This is the path the booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have just taken, and it is the path that the Pfizer pediatric vaccine (for young people aged 5 to 11) will take in the weeks to come.

There are many opportunities for free COVID-19 vaccination in Marin County. Those who are eligible, but have not yet completed their round of immunizations, are encouraged to make an online reservation in advance.
