ABOUT BOOSTER SHOTS

- FROM ODH (just updated): Frequently asked questions about booster shots
FROM ODH (Ohio Department of Health):
At this time, booster doses are authorized for fully vaccinated Pfizer/Comirnaty or Moderna vaccine recipients who are at high-risk for exposure to COVID-19 or the complications from severe disease, and can be given at least six months after completion of the primary series.
Those who received an initial series of either Pfizer/Comirnaty or Moderna and are currently eligible include those who meet any of the following criteria:
- 65 years and older.
- Age 18 and older who live in long-term care settings.
- Age 18 and older who have underlying medical conditions.
- Age 18 and older who work or live in high-risk settings.
Booster doses are authorized for all recipients of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone age 18 or older who received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine can get a second booster dose at least two months following the initial dose.
Available data right now show that all three of the COVID-19 vaccines approved or authorized in the United States continue to be highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even against the widely circulating Delta variant. Vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself and reduce the spread of the virus and help prevent new variants from emerging.
Richland Public Health will have the Moderna booster available once we have a supply in and a decision has been made about distribution. We will update this information once that information is available.
