All individuals who received the Pfizer, Moderna or J&J vaccines are eligible for a booster injection now, if it has been at least 6 months since their second injection.
People who have underlying health conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, are over 65 or work in an environment which has a high risk of exposure are encouraged to seek out a booster at their local health department or pharmacy.
Here at SLC, we have established which of our residents are in need of a 3rd dose. Now that the Moderna vaccine is approved for booster doses, we will be reaching out to
families to seek out their approval for the booster dose. We will not be able to have large clinics here like we ran before, so we are in the process of setting up a way to
provide the boosters.
People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose or a booster is appropriate for them.
