People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and may not build the same level of immunity to a two-dose vaccine series compared to people who are not immunocompromised.

People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems can also receive a booster dose 6 months after their additional dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or 5 months after their additional dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
