Share

August 17, 2021

The CDC is now recommending a third COVID-19 vaccine dose for certain patients with compromised or suppressed immune systems who received their first two doses of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna vaccines).

Studies have shown a third dose is safe and can provide added protection from severe illness or death from COVID-19 in those who have a weakened response to being vaccinated due to certain medical conditions or medications. Statement from CDC Director

Sheridan County Public Health is currently providing third COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible patients.

Third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine aren’t being recommended at this time for healthy individuals. No additional doses are currently being recommended for those who received a dose of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine.

We will provide updated information here as it is available.  For other COVID-19 Information and Resources click HERE or visit https://www.sheridanhospital.org/community/coronavirus/
