COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 Third Dose (“Booster”) Vaccines

Currently, the Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose of only the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine.  This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood.
  • Received and organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Received a stem call transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response.

At this time, an additional dose of the Johnson & Johnson (Jansen) COVID-19 vaccination is not recommended until further guidance is issued from the FDA and CDC.  You should receive a third dose of the type of vaccine you received originally.  We encourage all individuals to consult with your health care provider to ensure a third dose is recommended.

PLEASE ONLY CALL TO SCHEDULE FOR A THIRD DOSE IF YOU MEET THE CONDITIONS LISTED ABOVE OR YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER FEELS YOU SHOULD HAVE A THIRD DOSE AT THIS TIME.
