We are awaiting final guidance on booster doses of the Moderna and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccines. Complete information will be posted at www.lfchd.org and our Facebook page when available.
The Pfizer booster remains available by same-day appointment, 6 months after the 2nd dose, for the following:
- people ages 65 and older;
- people ages 18-64 with underlying medical conditions putting them at high risk of severe COVID-19 (this includes diabetes and heart, kidney or lung disease; more information on who is considered at high risk can be found at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-with-medical-conditions.html);
- people ages 18 and older who live in long-term care or high-risk settings; and
- people ages 18-64 who are likely to get exposed at work (examples include health care and education).
Anyone who needs a Pfizer booster or has yet to receive their first dose or second dose (or third dose for immunocompromised people) can call 859-288-2483 to schedule their same-day appointment. Our Public Health Clinic offers the Moderna and Janssen vaccines for ages 18 and older and the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12 and older.
