Last week, the CDC authorized an additional COVID booster for specific patients. Although a patient may have received any COVID vaccine for their primary series, second booster doses MUST be an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).

Starting Thursday, April 7, patients may schedule for a second booster dose if they meet BOTH of the following criteria:

  1. Previous booster was > 4 months ago

Moderately/severely immunocompromised includes the following medical conditions (per the CDC):

  • Stem Cell Transplant
  • Primary Immunodeficiency
  • HIV Infection
  • High-dose corticosteroid use
