GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) – Cone Health will begin offering booster doses of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines to those eligible on Tuesday, by appointment only, according to a news release from the health system.

Registration opens Tuesday morning.

The FDA and CDC have approved booster doses for the following populations six months or more after receiving the initial series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines: 

  • People ages 65 and older 
  • People ages 18 and older who live in long-term care facilities
  • People ages 18 and older who have underlying medical conditions 
  • People ages 18 and older who live or work in high-risk settings 

Anyone ages 18 and older who originally received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is eligible for a booster two or more months after receiving the initial shot. 

Cone Health will also follow FDA and CDC recommendations and offer “mix-and-match” booster doses at each of its vaccination clinics.
