See the CDC and CTDPH recommendations summarized below regarding booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines:

For individuals who received an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna)

Everyone 18 and older is eligible to receive a booster dose 6 months after completion of the primary series under the EUA. Individuals age 50 and older and residents in long-term care settings age 18 and older SHOULD receive a booster dose. Individuals 18 through 49 MAY receive a booster dose based on individual benefits and risk. More information can be found here. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be updating all of its supporting materials in the coming days.

 The J&J and heterologous series recommendations remain the same:

All individuals who received a J&J vaccine should receive a booster 2 months after the initial dose.

Both the FDA and CDC support individuals to receive a booster dose that is a different vaccine type than they originally received for their primary series if they choose. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
