MODERNA, PFIZER, AND JOHNSON & JOHNSON VACCINE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE DAILY

Dottie’s Pharmacy is now accepting appointments daily for the Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. To book an appointment, please select the appropriate link below for your preferred vaccine. If you choose the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, your second appointment will be scheduled while you are at the pharmacy receiving your first shot.


Effective Oct. 20, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended the Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for the Moderna and Janssen COVID-19 vaccines to allow for administration of booster doses in specific circumstances. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted yesterday to recommend booster doses under the criteria below, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director has officially adopted these recommendations. In addition, individuals eligible for a booster dose are now allowed to “mix and match” booster shots as noted below.

Moderna Booster Guidance
Eligibility Categories (per CDC):
The use of a single booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at least 6 months after completion of the primary series to individuals:

·       65 years and older

·       Age 18 years and older who live in long-term care settings

·       Age 18 years and older who have underlying medical conditions

·       Age 18 years and older who work or live in high-risk settings

Booster Dosage: *Dosage has changed from primary series
The booster dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is 0.25ml.  This is one-half of the primary dose.

Janssen Booster Guidance
The use of a single booster dose of the Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine (0.5mL) may be administered at least 2 months after completion of the single-dose primary vaccine to individuals 18 years of age and older.

Heterologous (“Mix and Match”) Booster Guidance
Individuals who are eligible for a booster dose may select which vaccine they receive. The eligible populations and dosing intervals for the heterologous (“mix and match”) booster dose are the same as those authorized for a booster dose of the vaccine used for primary vaccination. The booster dose (0.25mL) of the Moderna vaccine should be used whenever it is given as a booster. A different vaccine may not be used as part of the primary series.

Pfizer booster shots are now available.  Please check the following criteria, and if you qualify for a third dose you may sign up for an appointment below.
CDC recommends:
  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

The Moderna vaccine and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are only approved for 18 years and older, so please do not make reservations for anyone under the age of 18! The Pfizer vaccine is approved for ages 12 and older.
