Governor Janet Mills has announced that, effective immediately, all Maine adults age 18 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster shot, regardless of underlying medical condition.
Expanding booster eligibility will protect the health of Maine people, limit transmission of the deadly Delta variant, and preserve our health care system’s capacity now overburdened because of a sustained surge of COVID-19 cases. Because of this surge, particularly among unvaccinated individuals, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention has determined that all Maine residents live or work in high-risk settings, justifying the expansion of booster eligibility.
Effective immediately, people ages 18 and over may receive a booster shot in Maine if:
-They completed the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series at least six months ago; OR
-They received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.
