The CDC recommends an additional (3rd) dose of COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna OR Pfizer) for certain groups of patients.
This first series of questions is only for patients requesting a 3rd shot of CoVid-19 vaccine.
Your 3rd dose must be administered at least 6 months after your initial 2 dose vaccination series has been completed. (The exception to this is immunocompromised patients should wait a minimum of 28 days after the second dose to receive dose #3.) The CDC recommends the same vaccine as previous doses (e.g. Moderna recipients remain with Moderna). Moderna recipients must be ages 18+.
Pfizer and J&J vaccines are NOT currently available at Lopez Island Pharmacy.
People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
