Vaccines

Our Department is now using 3 vaccines: Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen. Read carefully the description for each clinic in the link & calendar below to see which vaccine is available.

Moderna is authorized for use in individuals 18 years of age and older. It is a 2-dose vaccine with 4 weeks between doses.

Pfizer is authorized for use in individuals 12 years of age and older. It is a 2-dose vaccine with 3 weeks between doses.

Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) is authorized for use in individuals 18 years of age and older. This is a single dose vaccine meaning one shot; no second dose/shot. The CDC and the FDA have resumed the recommended use of J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine COVID-19 vaccine under its emergency use authorization. Available data at this time shows that the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks. If you have any questions or concerns, call your doctor or nurse. For more information, visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/janssen.html

3rd Dose

Talk with your healthcare provider about your medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you. Learn more about the 3rd Dose recommendation from the CDC here.

CDC is currently recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

For people who received either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine series, a third dose of the same mRNA vaccine should be used. Make an Appointment below using the 3rd Dose link.

Booster Dose

On September 24, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in certain populations and those in high risk occupational and institutional settings. People in any of these groups should receive the Booster Dose at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series:

  • People 65 years and older
  • Residents of long-term care settings
  • People aged 50-64 years with underlying medical conditions
  • People aged 18-49 years with underlying medical conditions based on their individual benefits and risks, and 
  • People aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting based on their individual benefits and risks.

A patient’s clinical team is best able to assess booster eligibility and timing, clinical status of underlying medical conditions, risk of complications, comorbidities, and transmission/exposure/infection risk.

Learn more about the CDC’s recommendation for a Booster Dose here.

For people who received a complete Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine series, a Booster Dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine should be used. Make an Appointment below using the Booster Dose link below.
