BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Saratoga County is including 16 and 17-year-olds in its upcoming COVID-19 Pfizer booster clinics. This comes after the Food and Drug Administration opened the Pfizer booster shot to those ages 16 and 17 on December 9.

To be eligible for a booster, you must have had your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least six months prior to the clinic date or the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at least two months prior to the clinic date.
