Pre-registration was preferred, but walk-ins were accepted as vaccine supplies lasted.

People were asked to bring their CDC vaccination card with a record of the previous doses, if applicable.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved Pfizer booster shots for anyone over the age of 12.

For Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, boosters are available to those ages 18 and up.

Hartford HealthCare said boosters are recommended for two-dose Pfizer vaccine recipients five months after the second dose.

For Moderna two-dose recipients ages 18 and up, it’s also recommended to get a booster after five months.

Anyone who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is eligible for a booster of either Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson after two months.
