Other groups recommended to receive the Pfizer booster are people aged 18 to 49 years with underlying medical conditions and/or at an increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting, some of which include: first responders; front line essential workers and health care workers; education staff; U.S. Postal Service workers; and employees in Corrections; public transit; manufacturing; food and agricultural; and grocery stores.
