Additional doses for people age 5+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised

Additional Dose in Primary Series

The CDC recommends that some people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised and who are age 5 or older receive an additional dose during their primary series. This means your primary series is three doses of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two doses of a Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

First Booster

People who are immunocompromised and have completed the primary series should get a booster dose. See the CDC’s website for timing and details based on the type of vaccine you’ve received.

Second Booster

The CDC also recommends second boosters for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised. A second booster dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine may be administered to individuals 12 years of age and older with certain kinds of compromised immunity, at least 4 months after receipt of a first booster dose. These are people who have undergone solid organ transplantation, or who are living with conditions that are considered to have an equivalent level of compromised immunity.


Lost Vaccination Cards

We cannot issue replacement COVID-19 vaccination cards. If you've lost your card, follow these instructions:

I was vaccinated in Wisconsin

You can access and print your entire vaccination record using the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). Your WIR record can be used in place of your vaccination card.

I was vaccinated in another state

If you received your vaccination in another state, go to that state department of health website to determine how to get a copy of your record.
