LENOWISCO Health District Vaccination Information

Who is eligible?

Everyone 12 and older who lives or works in LENOWISCO Health District

The FDA authorization for a 3rd dose of vaccine applies to those who received Pfizer or Moderna.  This dose not apply to individuals who received Johnson and Johnson vaccine. For those who received one of the two mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna), they will also need to attest verbally that they meet the criteria of immunocompromised.  Individuals do not have to present with a written order but must self-attest they meet one of the immunocompromised conditions.

Examples of immunocompromised includes but are not limited to:
  • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
  • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF) blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.
  • Asplenia (no spleen)
  • chronic kidney failure/dialysis

This is NOT the "booster" vaccine, this is an approved 3rd dose for those individuals who are moderately and severely immunocompromised. This additional 3rd dose does NOT include any new protections from the variant strands and is intended for those individuals with immune system complications to further build additional protection from COVID. Only individuals who meet the following criteria should currently get a 3rd dose:

❗Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
❗Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
❗Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
❗Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
❗Advanced or untreated HIV infection
❗Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response
 
People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them. Those getting a second dose should wait for a minimum of 28 days after receiving your second dose to receive your 3rd. If you do not fall into one of the above categories, please wait for an official Booster shot to be released to help protect you from the COVID variants.
