For initial doses of the vaccine, children ages 5 to 17 may ONLY receive the Pfizer vaccine, but adults aged 18 and older may receive the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Those age 5 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may request a third primary dose of the appropriate vaccine.
The Pfizer Booster shot is available to children ages 12 to 17 that have received their second shot five or more months ago.

Regarding Boosters, the FDA recommends:

If unvaccinated, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) are recommended.
Those that are fully vaccinated, should request a booster shot if:
They received their second Pfizer-BioNTech more than 5 months ago and are age 12+ years
