walk-ins will not be permitted for booster doses. Registration for the

booster dose portions of our clinics are limited based on a set capacity

AM I ELIGIBLE FOR A BOOSTER DOSE YET?

 

The NYSDOH – New York State Health Department has updated their “Booster

Doses” site in accordance with the changes recently announced by the

federal government. There are now booster recommendations for all three

COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States. The CDC and New York

State Department of Health recommend that certain individuals who

received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six

months after their initial series get their “booster dose.” These

individuals include those who are 65 years and older and individuals who

are 18 and older who live in long-term care settings, have underlying

medical conditions, or who work or live in high-risk settings.

Additionally, booster doses are recommended for all individuals 18 and

older who received the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at

least two months ago. For more info about Booster shots and to find out

if you’re eligible, check the state’s site here: ny.gov/boosters [2]

 

Those who wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at one of our clinics

should:

 

– Bring Identification

 

– Wear a short sleeve shirt

– Plan to stay for at least 15 minutes following vaccination for

monitoring

 

IF one of our events does not fit in your schedule, be sure to check

with your local pharmacy or healthcare provider too! Vaccines (including

booster doses) are available in many different locations! THANK YOU for

helping us to #vaccinatewashingtoncounty !
