PONTIAC, Mich. – Clinics to administer booster doses of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines will launch this week in Oakland County.

People who are considering getting a booster dose that is a different brand from their original dose are urged to contact their healthcare provider before doing so.

The CDC allows individuals to mix and match their dose for the booster shots. That means if someone wants a different vaccine than their original dose, they can get it.

Appointments are strongly recommended but not required. Pfizer booster doses will also be available.

Last month, boosters for the Pfizer vaccine began. Last week, the government allowed extra doses of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
