Important COVID-19 Booster Update:
Today, the FDA has issued emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna and the Pfizer- COVID-19 Vaccines, authorizing bivalent formulations of the vaccines for use as a single
booster dose. These “fall boosters” are NOT yet available as a final recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is still required. This CDC recommendation expected later this week. We will begin
vaccinating with the new “fall boosters” after the CDC Director’s final recommendation and our vaccine supply has been shipped (no earlier than September 6th).
With today’s authorization, our current Moderna and Pfizer booster shots for individuals age 12 and older will no longer be available. We will not be accepting walk-ins or appointments for booster shots until the “fall boosters” arrive.
Individuals ages 5 and older seeking a first or second dose in their primary series of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine can continue to attend our walk-in clinic, Monday-Friday, 9am-4 PM at 1235 Ramsey Street.
We're working to bring you a new updated EHR! TB Skin Tests will be unavailable after noon today, August 19 and next Friday, August 26. TB Skin tests will resume the following Monday as usual.
