Vaccine Clinic – seasonal flu & COVID vaccines

Do I meet criteria for a COVID vaccine booster?

As of September 24, the CDC recommends the following (for those who received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months prior):

  • Individuals 65 years of age and older should receive a Pfizer booster.
  • Residents of long-term care facilities should receive a Pfizer booster.
  • People aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer.
  • Individuals 18 through 64 years of age at high risk of severe COVID-19 may receive a Pfizer booster.
  • Individuals 18 through 64 years of age whose frequent institutional or occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19 including severe COVID-19 may receive a Pfizer booster.

InterMed offers Pfizer boosters to patients who meet any of the above criteria..

Booster data for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been submitted to the FDA, which is expected to conduct a review on October 14 & 15. The FDA’s recommendation will be sent to the CDC on October 20 & 21 for final approval before we would be able to administer any boosters. Please note that “mix and match” of vaccines is not allowed at this time.


Do I meet criteria for a Pfizer or Moderna third dose?

Currently, only people with compromised immune systems are approved for a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine which includes individuals who are:

  • Receiving chemotherapy for cancer.
  • Taking immunosuppressive medication because you are a transplant recipient (solid organ or bone marrow).
  • Taking immunosuppressive medication because you have a condition such as multiple sclerosis or inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis.
  • An individual who doesn’t have a spleen.
  • An individual with moderate to severe kidney disease (stage 4, 5, or are on dialysis)
