Vaccine Updates

  • Guidance on Bivalent Booster Doses of COVID-19 vaccine. A booster dose of vaccine is recommended for all persons age 18 and older.
    • A single booster dose of the Moderna Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at least 2 months after completion of the primary series or previous booster dose (whichever is later) to individuals 18 years or older.
    • A single booster dose of the Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at least 2 months after completion of the primary series or previous booster dose (whichever is later) to individuals 12 years of age and older.
    • The use of each of the available COVID-19 vaccines as a heterologous (or “mix and match”) booster dose in eligible individuals following completion of primary series with a different available COVID-19 vaccine is permitted. 
  • Pediatric COVID Vaccine. CDC has authorized the use of Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccine for persons age 6 months to 18 years. We encourage you to contact your medical provider to schedule vaccination for your child. We are scheduling Moderna vaccinations for children ages 6 months to 11 years during our Childhood Immunization clinics (see below for details). You can find additional locations for vaccination of this age group at the Ohio Department of Health "GetTheShot" website.
  • CDC information on booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

  • The Centers for Disease Control released recommendations for an additional COVID vaccine dose (3rd dose) for those persons who may be moderately to severely immunocompromised. This is not a "booster" dose.  The recommendation for an additional dose of mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer only) is meant to help a person increase their immunity to COVID. Here is a link to the CDC recommendations for additional mRNA vaccines. We advise that you contact the provider of your initial COVID vaccine for more information on additional doses. We ask that persons receiving an additional dose of Moderna vaccine at our clinic have a conversation with their health care team prior to getting their additional dose. No order is needed from a physician or care giver.
