** Important Notices**

The Defense Health Agency has authorized military medical treatment facilities to offer a second COVID-19 booster to anyone age 50 and older and people 12 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.  The intent of the second booster is to provide better protection against developing severe COVID-19 illness for these more at risk populations before another potential COVID wave hits. The second booster, like all COVID-19 booster vaccinations is being offered on a voluntary basis four months after the first booster dose. 

Who can get a second booster (four months after first booster)?
- People over 50 who received a Moderna or Pfizer primary series, followed by a booster five months later.
- People over 50 who received Johnson & Johnson/Janssen primary dose followed by any booster.
- Anyone who received a J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for both their primary dose and booster. 

People ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised can receive a 2nd booster (5th dose) of an mRNA vaccine (*Teens ages 12–17 years may only get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster).
For specific details on what conditions constitute moderately or severely immunocompromised, please visit the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/immuno.html

The Ansbach Army Health Clinic offers COVID primary series vaccinations and COVID booster vaccinations through appointments booked online at  https://tricare.mil/vaccineappointments  Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are offered at these appointments.   Pfizer vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 years old may be scheduled by calling the clinic directly at 049 6371 9464 3600.   Please stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for the most up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination information.

UPDATE ON JANSSEN BOOSTER: We are aware of the discrepancy between the position of U.S. Health Authorities and Germany on booster vaccinations for persons who initially received the Janssen vaccination. U.S. Health Authorities (The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration) consider receipt of one dose of an mRNA vaccine (i.e., Pfizer or Moderna) or a second dose of the Janssen vaccine two months after the first vaccination as rendering full booster protection.

Presently, Germany requires Janssen vaccinated individuals to receive two booster shots to be considered fully boosted and exempted from the 2G-plus testing requirements. Army MTFs are required to follow U.S. Health Authority standards for administering vaccinations. As a result, our MTFs cannot offer a 2nd mRNA booster vaccination to Janssen recipients and do not recommend receipt of such a booster vaccination at this time. We are working with our higher headquarters and the host nation to determine an appropriate way forward. In the meantime, those who were vaccinated with Janssen may have to undergo COVID testing to enter some host nation establishments.

**COVID Vaccination Events**


U.S. Army Health Clinic Ansbach administers COVID-19 vaccinations (First Dose, Second Dose, Booster Shots) to all eligible Department of Defense beneficiaries, 12 years of age and older, at the clinic each Wednesday and Friday, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be offered. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have expanded COVID-19 booster shot eligibility to all fully vaccinated Americans who are age 12 and older. Those who received the Pfizer or Moderna immunization series are now eligible for a booster five months after their second shot. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine are eligible for a booster two months after the first shot.

Mix and Match: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) 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.
