We recommend members and dependents to get the COVID-19 vaccine once it is available to them. The cost of the COVID-19 vaccine is covered 100% by the OLDC-OCA Insurance Fund for all eligible members and dependents.

Everyone 5 years of age and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination. If unvaccinated, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) are recommendedIf you are moderately or severely immunocompromised, find out more about getting an additional primary dose.

If you are fully vaccinated, booster shots are recommended if:

  • You are 12+ and received your second Pfizer-BioNTech shot more than 5 months ago
  • You are age 18+ years and received a second Moderna shot more than 5 months ago and
  • You received a J&J/Janssen shot more than 2 months ago

Which booster should you get:

Most adults 18+, regardless of which vaccine they first received, should get Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) for their booster dose. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only booster available to anyone ages 12-17. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
