Faculty and Staff Regular Boosters


Yes. All JMU employees are eligible for a booster per CDC recommendations. The timing of your booster depends on when you received your initial vaccination:

  • If you got the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine: At least 5 months after the primary series
  • If you got the Moderna vaccine: At least 6 months after the primary series
  • If you got the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccination: At least 2 months after the first shot.

Your booster vaccine does not have to be the same one as your primary series.

Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are preferred. You may get Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in some situations. More information is available from the CDC.

To make an appointment for a booster, or an initial vaccine, visit the VDH website

Vaccines and boosters will also be available on campus through the Health Center and in partnership with VDH. Check university communications for additional vaccine opportunities.  

For questions about boosters, email cshdinfo@vdh.virginia.gov. You can also find more information online through VDH.
