Sign up for a booster dose on our scheduler, found here.

Both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine have not been approved for an additional dose outside of their original recommendation. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is scheduled to discuss approval of an additional dose for certain groups on October 21st. Distribution of these additional doses will happen only after their recommendation. To be alerted for when this happens, text “UCHEALTH” to 888777.

3rd mRNA dose now available for those immunocompromised.

Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. A third dose for those immunocompromised is different than a booster dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

Visit the CDC website to learn more.

Preparing for a COVID-19 vaccine

Before you come for your vaccination, please hydrate and eat well.

The CDC does not recommend taking ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen BEFORE your vaccination to try and mitigate side effects. However, if you do take these types of medications regularly for other reasons, please continue taking them prior to vaccination.

If you have questions about medications you are taking, please contact your primary care physician.

For those who are under the age of 18, no ID is required. However, minors do need to be accompanied by an adult who must present their ID.
