COVID-19 3rd dose vaccine for immunocompromised people.

Recently the FDA and the CDC authorized a 3rd dose COVID-19 vaccine for immunocompromised individuals. 3rd dose COVID-19 vaccines are available now at pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, and health departments across Iowa. The 3rd dose COVID-19 vaccine only applies to individuals who have completed the two-dose vaccine from either Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech AND fit into an eligible category:

  • Cancer treatment
  • Organ transplant recipient that takes medication to suppress the immune system
  • Received stem cell transplant in last 2 years
  • Medication that suppresses the immune system
  • Has an immunodeficiency (DiGeorge Syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for the mix and match dosing of booster shots. While some people may prefer to get a different booster, this will be dependent on the availability of COVID-19 vaccines on hand.

Moderna & Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster dose for adults 65+ and specific at-risk groups.

The FDA and CDC have voted to recommend a booster dose of Moderna & Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine in certain populations. Individuals may self-attest (i.e. self-report that they are eligible) and receive a booster shot wherever vaccines are offered. Booster dose COVID-19 vaccines are available now at pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, and health departments across Iowa.

Effective immediately, CDC recommends:

  • People 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of
    the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech primary series.
  •  People aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of
    the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech primary series.
  • People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of
    the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • 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 the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
