COVID-19 Vaccine Update (as of Nov. 9, 2021)

 

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

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.

PLEASE READ ENTIRE MESSAGE for details on eligibility.

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.

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.

3. 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.****
