COVID-19 Booster

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recommends a booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines in certain populations.

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and CDC’s recommendation for use are important steps forward as we work to stay ahead of the virus and keep Americans safe.

For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:

People with moderate or severe immunocompromise conditions are eligible to receive a booster 28 days after the 2nd dose.

For those in eligible groups, COVID-19 boosters are available on a walk-in basis at the seven Saltzer Health urgent cares, including the 24-hour clinic at Ten Mile, 867 S. Vanguard Way off Ten mile & I-84 in Meridian.

Saltzer Health does not currently stock the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
