Booster Covid-19 Vaccine Doses

Nov. 19, 2021 - Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna

Following new federal guidance released Friday, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services issued updated orders that expand recommendations for booster shots to include all adults ages 18 years and older who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine at least six months after their second dose. Previous guidance recommended booster shots for people over 65 years of age, those with underlying health issues or those at heightened risk because of a living or working condition.

Oct. 25, 2021 - Moderna and Johnson & Johnson

Following federal guidance issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has amended the state's standing order for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for those who are eligible for a booster shot. The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine was approved as a booster dose on Sept. 28.

Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

A booster dose of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine can be administered to people at least six months after their initial series based on CDC guidance:

  • people 65 years and older should receive a booster;
  • residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster;
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster;
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster; and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for Covid-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional settings (e.g., frontline medical workers, teachers, and first responders) may receive a booster.

A booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine can be administered to adults 18 years and older at least eight weeks after completion of the initial dose.
People who received only one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and who cannot finish the two-dose series may receive a dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as long as 28 days have passed since receiving the one dose.

People who want the Johnson & Johnson booster/vaccine should contact Katy Trail Community Health.

Sept. 28, 2021 - Pfizer

Following federal guidance issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has amended the state’s standing order for Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine administration for those who are eligible for a booster shot.

Missourians who received the Pfizer vaccine can receive a booster shot at least six months after their initial series based on CDC guidance:

  • people 65 years and older should receive a booster;
  • residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster;
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster;
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster; and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for Covid-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional settings (e.g. frontline medical workers, teachers, and first responders) may receive a booster.

Those with an underlying medical condition are encouraged to speak with their health care provider about whether a booster shot is right for them.

Third mRNA Covid-19 Vaccine Dose - Immunocompromised

Following an order from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), Bothwell Regional Health Center will begin administering third doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine on Aug. 23 to certain immunocompromised individuals 16 years and older who have already received the two-dose Pfizer series. Individuals should wait at least 28 days between their second and third doses.

A third dose of the PfizerNBioTech or Moderna vaccines may be administered to moderately to severely immunocompromised people due to a medical condition or combination of immunosuppressive medication or treatments including but not limited to the following:

  • Immunocompromised due to solid organ transplant and taking immune-suppressing medications
  • Immunocompromised due to active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Immune compromised due to Receipt of CAR-T cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate to severe primary immunodeficiency (eg., DiGeorge, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndromes)
  • Immunocompromised due to Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Immunocompromised due to “Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress immune response: high dose corticosteroids (ie.,≥ 20 mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF) blocker or other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory”

While eligible individuals will not be required to provide documentation of their health status, they will be required to sign a new Covid-19 consent form as well as a form stating they qualify for the third dose and have received the two-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine.

Individuals who do not meet the criteria for “moderately to severely immunocompromised” do not need a third dose at this time.
