PHD offers three brands of COVID booster shots
October 28, 2021
A single booster dose of the Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is approved for use in those who completed their primary Moderna series at least 6 months earlier and who fall into one of these categories:
• 65 years or older
• Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
• Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
• Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
A booster dose also is recommended for those who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, are 18 or older, and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Information on where and how to schedule an appointment with PHD is available on their website: www.panhandlehealthdistrict.org/covid-19/vaccine/. The Health District encourages the community to utilize Vaccine Finder for additional vaccine locations, the vaccine brands available, and walk-in or scheduling details.
