Pfizer Vaccine Booster

9/28/2021​

Recently, a booster dose for the Pfizer vaccine was authorized by both the FDA and CDC for certain individuals.

OAHS will be offering COVID-19 booster shots to:

  • People 65+ and those in long-term care facilities at least six months after their second Pfizer dose.
  • People 18+ with underlying health conditions or with jobs that put them at a higher risk (such as health care workers, teachers and other front-line workers) at least six months after their second Pfizer dose.

Individuals who have received the Moderna or Janssen (J&J) vaccine have not been approved to receive a booster dose at this time.

Patients

Beginning September 28, patients will be able to schedule their booster shot by calling 320-839-6157.

An additional vaccine dose of mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine was previously approved for immunocompromised individuals, but a fourth (booster) dose is not recommended at this time.

Employees

Eligible employees are highly encouraged to receive the Pfizer booster dose, but it is not required at this time.  Employees will be able to schedule their booster shot by calling the clinic at 320-839-6157.  Cost of administration will be submitted to health insurance for the booster dose.

Employees must show their vaccine card to verify they received their second Pfizer vaccine dose at least six months ago.
