Effective Tuesday, October 26th, 2021 the BHS Clarion Hospital Vaccine Clinic located at 1 Hospital Drive, Clarion, PA 16214, will be administering both Moderna & Pfizer vaccine boosters to the following approved groups:
· Healthcare workers
· Individuals over the age of 65
· Residents of long-term care facilities
· Aged 50-64 with underlying medical conditions
· Aged 18-49 with underlying medical condition, based on their individual risks
The required time frame to receive a booster is at least 6 months after the 2nd dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. If the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) one shot vaccine was the vaccine received, individuals are eligible for a booster at 2 months or more after the vaccination was given. There are no additional criteria for a booster following J&J. The FDA and CDC have authorized a "mix and match" approach for boosters. This means that a booster shot does NOT need to be the same vaccine that was originally received. In particular, people who received J&J vaccine originally may want to select Moderna or Pfizer vaccine for their booster. At this time, boosters have not been approved for individuals under the age of 18 years.
