COVID Boosters for immune compromised individuals

The CDC has approved the administration of a 3rd dose of either Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccines for immunocompromised people as outlined in the screenshot below. This vaccine is to be administered at least 28 days following the second dose of the original 2 dose series. Ideally, the 3rd dose will be the same as the initial completed series but in the event that is unavailable it is acceptable to administer the other vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna interchange only). We currently stock both vaccines so there should be no issue completing the series with what you started with. Please visit our website to make an appointment if this applies to you!

*** These are not boosters for people who received the single dose of J&J vaccine though during the CDC meeting on Friday they made a point to say that recommendation is currently being worked on by the FDA. This is also not a booster for anyone based on age or other comorbidities like we had in the initial roll out (I.e. not necessarily for chronic conditions like hypertension, COPD, obesity, diabetes, etc.) The rest of us may be recommended a booster in the coming months, but for now just keep using caution in public situations!
