Vaccine Scheduling Information

UPDATED: December 20, 2021

On Friday, December 17th, the CDC updated recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines to include a preference for the mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccines over the Janssen/J&J vaccine due to concerns for a rare form of blood clots and a lower level of protection against COVID-19.  While the overall risk of developing the blood clots is rare (approximately 1 per 100,000 doses administered) the risk is greatest for women ages 18-49 years old.

Please see the following links for additional information:

Our pharmacy will continue to offer the J&J vaccine as an option for our patients but recommend that our patients consider one of the mRNA vaccines as the preferred option in light of this new recommendation.

UPDATED: December 6, 2021

Current CDC guidelines recommend that all adults & children over the age of 5 should obtain an age-appropriate COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of history of previous infection.  Vaccination continues to be the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as to reduce the likelihood of developing severe symptoms should an infection occur.  All adults 18 and over who have been previously vaccinated should also obtain a booster shot at 2 months (if J&J was the original vaccine received) or at 6 months following the second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

Visit the CDC website for detailed information about vaccine recommendations, side effects and answers to frequently asked questions about the vaccine.
