OCTOBER 15, 2021 – The FDA is expected to authorize booster shots of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for people 65 and older; those 18 to 64 with risk factors for severe COVID-19; and those whose jobs put them at high risk for serious complications of COVID-19.
NH+C will offer Moderna booster shots for qualified people after FDA authorization plus CDC and MDH guidance are complete. To prepare, NH+C has opened its booster shot waitlist to people vaccinated with Moderna. Join the booster shot waitlist.
We contact people on our waitlist via phone or text to schedule an appointment. You must hear from us before scheduling a booster shot appointment. There is no need to call NH+C until you hear from us.
On Oct. 14, an FDA advisory committee recommended to the FDA to authorize Moderna boosters. The FDA is expected to issue its authorization the week of Oct. 18.
The CDC is scheduled to meet Oct. 20-21 to set guidance following FDA authorization. NH+C will follow CDC and MDH guidance to provide booster shots for those who meet these criteria.
People who have had two doses of Pfizer or Moderna (or one dose of J&J) are well-protected against hospitalization and death from COVID-19.
Why another dose? Because each dose of vaccine prompts your body to practice how to fight the virus if it gets exposed to it.
It’s important to get unvaccinated people protected against COVID-19. Vaccination is FREE. Schedule your appointment: 507-646-8019
