An additional dose is used to describe people who may have not had a strong immune response from the first two doses. A booster shot is used to describe those whose immune response may have waned over time. Currently, recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are not recommended to receive more than one dose. They are also not eligible to receive any doses of the mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine.
