COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Update
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection, studies show that after getting vaccinated against COVID-19, protection against the virus may decrease over time and be less able to protect against the Delta variant.
Harrison County Community Hospital is now offering Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster vaccines. Those eligible are:
- 65 years and older
- Age 18+ who live in a long-term care setting
- Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18+ who work in high-risk settings
- Age 18+ who live in high-risk settings
Those receiving the Moderna booster must wait six months following their 2nd dose to be eligible for the booster. Johnson & Johnson recipients must wait two months following their initial dose to qualify for the booster shot.
If you are interested in receiving your initial Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccination or booster, please call (660) 425-0325 or (660) 373-9170 to schedule an appointment.
