Pediatric COVID-19 Booster Doses Available at Publix Pharmacy


Following the CDC’s recent approval, Lakeland, Florida-based Publix Pharmacy will administer booster doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals ages 12 and older. The vaccine would be available as early as five months after the last dose of their primary vaccine series. 

Publix Pharmacy also will administer third doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to certain immunocompromised children ages 5-11.

Additionally, consistent with the CDC’s most recent guidance, eligible individuals ages 18 and older who completed their primary vaccine series with the Pfizer vaccine can receive a booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine as early as five months after receiving their last primary series dose. 

This reduction in time between the last primary series dose and booster dose only applies to individuals who completed their primary vaccine series with the Pfizer vaccine. Recommended intervals for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have not changed. 

Publix Pharmacy continues to offer first, second, third and booster doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, as well as first and booster doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to eligible individuals. Eligibility details are available at cdc.gov/coronavirus.

Interested individuals also may receive the flu shot at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccination.

Customers can use the online reservation system at publix.com/covidvaccine to see if a nearby Publix Pharmacy offers their preferred vaccine. Customers can also visit vaccines.gov to find the nearest Publix Pharmacy offering the Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccines, or walk into any Publix Pharmacy to ask.
