Booster shots, mix and matching vaccines, vaccines for kids, immunity and mask mandates.

There has been a lot of news lately on the COVID-19 front. We’ll break it down for you.


Booster Shots

All three vaccine booster shots were given emergency use authorization for eligible populations by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If You Previously Received the Pfizer and Moderna Vaccine:

Who is Eligible?

  • Ages 65 years and older.
  • Residents in long-term care settings, 18 years and older.
  • Ages 18 and older with underlying medical conditions.
  • Ages 18 years and older who work or live in a high-risk setting. This includes:
  • first responders
  • education staff (teachers, support staff)
  • daycare workers
  • workers in manufacturing, grocery stores, public transit, corrections, and food and agriculture


When to get a booster

At least six months after the second shot.

Which booster should you get?

Any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the U.S. While the Pfizer booster requires the full dose, half a dose of the Moderna booster is enough to boost immunity.

If You Previously Received the Johnson and Johnson (J&J) Vaccine:

Who is Eligible?

Ages 18 years and older.

When to get a booster

At least two months after your shot. The J&J vaccine has lower vaccine effectiveness over time compared to mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna).

Which booster should you get?

Any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the U.S.

Mix and Matching of Booster Vaccines

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for mix and match dosing for booster shots. The booster shot does not have to match the primary series shot.


Vaccines for Kids Approved

On November 2, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. The vaccine previously received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Children ages 5 through 11 years will receive one-third of the adult dose of the Pfizer vaccine. It is a two-dose series given three weeks apart. Smaller needles, designed specifically for children, will be used.

Jackson County Mask Mandate

The Jackson County Legislature extended the mask mandate until Nov. 22. The mask order was set to expire on Nov. 7. Individuals five years of age and older are required to wear a face covering or mask in places of public accommodation.

“Over the past several weeks we have made significant progress in reducing the spread of coronavirus by wearing masks. However, we have not yet reached the CDC threshold that would no longer categorize our community as a high or substantial area of virus transmission. Thanks to the community’s continued sacrifice and resilience, we are very close to where we need to be."

- Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr.

Jackson County Resolution

Infection-induced and Vaccine-induced Immunity

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a science brief on Friday, Oct. 29, providing an overview of current scientific evidence regarding immune response following infection and vaccination. 

Key Findings

  • Available evidence shows that fully vaccinated and those previously infected with COVID-19, each have a low risk of subsequent infection for at least six months.

  • The immunity provided by the vaccine and prior infection are both high, but not 100%.

  • Substantial immunologic evidence and a growing body of epidemiologic evidence indicate that vaccination after infection significantly enhances protection and further reduces risk of reinfection.
