  • 65 and over
  • Residents of long-term care facilities

Additional doses for people with weakened immune systems (immunocompromised):

THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN A PFIZER BOOSTER SHOT! 

People with weakened immune systems are more likely to get COVID-19 than people with normal immune systems. And if they get infected they are more likely to get seriously ill and to spread the virus to other people in their home.

Studies have shown that some people who are immunocompromised don’t build enough protection after receiving 2 doses of Pfizer OR Moderna vaccine. 

Because of this, the CDC recommends that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional 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 the immune response

Talk to your doctor about the need to get an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine. If you need a third dose, ask about the best timing based on your current treatment plan. This is especially important if you are about to start or restart immunosuppressive treatment.

Note: The third dose of mRNA vaccine should be given at least 28 days after the second dose.

Instructions for Additional Doses:

Eligible ECC students/employees will need to print out and complete the Self-Attestation of Eligibility Form, as well as bring proof of their original vaccination dates (preferable to bring the original vaccination cards, so the new vaccination information can be added to the same vaccination card). SHS will have forms available in the health center.
