According to CNN, booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine will be available starting on September 20th. The date of your second shot will determine when you would be eligible for the booster vaccine. You will be able to get more protection for COVID with a booster shot 8 months after your second dose.

Director Dr. Rochelle Walewnsky and FDA Acting Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodstock tell CNN,

"We are prepared to offer booster shots for all Americans beginning the week of September 20 and starting 8 months after an individual's second dose," "At that time, the individuals who were fully vaccinated earliest in the vaccination rollout, including many health care providers, nursing home residents, and other seniors, will likely be eligible for a booster.

The booster shots will be for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines at this time only. Health officials are still waiting for more data before approving a third shot for the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine. The booster shots are to help in providing protection against the Delta variant which has spread and increased COVID numbers across the country. More than 900,000 new cases of COVID were reported last week in the U.S.
