COVID-19 Update

The CDC now recommends a 3rd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals. This includes people who have completed a vaccination series with Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.  For eligible immunocompromised people, the CDC recommends the same vaccine as previous doses and recipients must be ages 12+ for Pfizer-BioNTech or ages 18+ for Moderna.

Johnson & Johnson vaccination recipients are not eligible for an additional dose at this time.

According to the CDC, individuals considered immunocompromised have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and/or 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
