Now Administering Booster Doses to Eligible Individuals
In accordance with the CDC guidance for administering booster doses to eligible individuals who completed their second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago, the Union County Health Department is now offering booster doses in our COVID-19 vaccination clinics. Booster doses are by appointment and can be made at www.uchdclinic.org. For those without internet access, please reach out to a friend or family member for help. If you require further assistance, please call our office at (937) 642-2053. You must bring your COVID-19 vaccination record and photo ID to your appointment. We also ask you to wear your mask and clothing that allows access to your upper arm.
|These new recommendations are in addition to the CDC/FDA’s previous recommendation that individuals with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Immunocompromised patients are eligible for a 3rd dose of Pfizer or Moderna at least 28 days after a 2nd dose of vaccine.
There is no recommendation, at this time, for other groups to get an additional dose of vaccine. The FDA is expected to review data related to additional doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson over the next several weeks. Once guidance is available, COPC will share recommendations.
