LOCAL UPDATE FROM CRNA OCTOBER 5TH, 2021
We currently offer the COVID-19 vaccine for people 12 years of age and older

For both Moderna and Pfizer, we offer the recommended 3rd dose (continuation of primary series) no earlier than 28 days from 2nd dose, for anyone that is immunocompromised.

We offer a recommended booster dose (Pfizer Comirnaty), available 6 months after Pfizer Primary Series for those age 65 and over, those with underlying medical conditions and age 18 and over, and those at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and age 18 and over. This booster is currently not recommended for individuals that received a primary series other than Pfizer.

Vaccine recommendations continue to be reviewed for expanded use and eligibility by manufacturers and the FDA.

ORIGINAL STORY, SEPT. 28TH, 2021

 

CDC recommends that people in the following groups receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completion of their 2-dose Pfizer series...

People ages 65 years and older
Adults 18+ living in long-term care settings
People ages 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions

People who got the Moderna Vaccine will have to wait for the CDC to approve a Moderna booster vaccine. So far, data seems to show the Moderna Vaccine maintains its protective efficacy longer than the Pfizer Vaccine.

People who were vaccinated with the Pfizer Vaccine and are now approved to receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine booster also include:

People ages 18–49 with an underlying medical condition.
People ages 18–64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission due to working or residing in certain settings.


People can talk to their healthcare provider about whether getting a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot is appropriate for them.
