COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE (As of Nov. 2, 2021)

 

COVID-19 Booster Vaccines:

Army MTFs have received authorization to begin administration of COVID-19 booster vaccines to specific high-risk population groups based on U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emergency use authorization guidance.

1. For those who received either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine primary two-dose series, the following groups are eligible for a single COVID-19 booster shot six or more months after the initial series:
· 65 years and older
· 18 years and older with underlying medical conditions
· 18 years and older who live in long-term care settings
· 18 years and older who work or live in high-risk settings.

Additional information about each category is available at: https://www.cdc.gov/.../2019-ncov/vaccines/booster-shot.html.

2. For individuals 18 years and older who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine primary dose, a single COVID-19 vaccine booster dose is recommended two or more months after the initial dose.

Mix and Match: The FDA also amended the EUAs for COVID-19 vaccines to allow “mixing and matching” of any of the available COVID-19 vaccines when used as a booster regardless of original vaccine administered.

At this time, the FDA and CDC DO NOT recommend COVID-19 boosters for people who do not fit into the categories above.

We have already started to vaccinate our health care staff, in line with the FDA and CDC guidance. In the coming days, we will provide information on COVID-19 booster vaccine appointments and events on Facebook and the public website.

Eligible IMMUNOCOMPROMISED individuals can continue to make an appointment for a third dose in Pfizer or Moderna.

Patients needing a third dose MUST bring their vaccination card, so the date of their last vaccination can be verified.

Patients under 18 MUST have a picture identification such as government ID or passport.

 

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children ages 5-11:
 

On October 29, 2021 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 to include children 5 through 11 years of age. On November 2, 2021 the CDC provided recommendations for its use.

We have placed orders for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for ages 5-11 and expect to receive the vaccine in 10-14 days.

Upon arrival, we will announce upcoming vaccination opportunities for those patient populations through our social media platforms and this webpage.

All appointments associated with readiness will now be conducted virtually or telephonically. It is imperative Soldiers ensure their phone numbers are up to date in the system. The Vicenza staff is calling each Soldier at least 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment to conduct the virtual appointment.

Birth Control: Beginning March 30, there will be no more birth control (Nexplanon, IUD) procedures conducted.

Pharmacy: Beginning March 30, the clinic will be moving to drive-through pharmacy operations, in order to promote social distancing.

Vaccinations: Effective immediately, all vaccines for adults will be offered on a case-by-case basis and by appointment only.

Optometry: the Optometry Clinic is only offering acute appointments at this time, even for readiness.

Acute Respiratory Clinic

Patients who contact the call center (314-636-9000 or 39 0444 61 9000) with fever (subjective or objective) and signs of respiratory illness (cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, etc.) are scheduled for an appointment with the Acute Respiratory Clinic. The clinic will perform rapid tests for influenza and/or strep throat depending on the presenting symptoms, because these illnesses can present with similar symptoms to COVID-19. If the patient is diagnosed with influenza or another condition by rapid diagnostic test and that diagnosis fully explains all of their symptoms, there will be no test for COVID-19. If the patient tests negative for those other conditions, they will be swabbed for COVID-19.
