COVID-19 Vaccine - 3rd Dose Information
In August 2021, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a plan to begin offering COVID-19 booster shots in the fall of 2021 for those who received Pfizer (also called Comirnaty) or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. It is anticipated, boosters will start the week of September 20, 2021, but a firm date has not been established. When the date is determined, those who are eight months past the date of their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine would become eligible for the COVID-19 booster dose. Buchanan County Public Health (BCPH) will share the COVID-19 booster start date through many channels when available.
