Health Department Back to School Vaccination Clinics

Got Questions About the COVID Booster Shot?

The CDC has authorized Pfizer and Moderna vaccine recipients for a 3rd dose if they have a health condition that severely weakens their immune system.  2.7% of the adult population and a small number of adolescents will qualify.  These conditions include the following:
  • Organ transplant recipients
  • Current treatment for blood and lymph cancers (leukemias and lymphomas) and most other types of cancers requiring chemotherapy
  • Stem cell transplant recipients
  • Advanced HIV infection
  • Active treatment with medications that weaken components of the immune system, including 20 or more milligrams/day of prednisone or comparable steroid medications, TNF blockers, and other medications that impair response of the immune system
  • Primary immunodeficiency diseases (e.g., DiGeorge, Wiskott-Aldrich syndromes)
  • Severe renal disease

Anyone qualifying for a third dose should already be under the care of a physician.  It is best for you to have a discussion with your personal doctor to decide: 1) if a 3rd dose is appropriate for you, and 2) if any temporary modifications in your treatments are needed to get the greatest benefit from a 3rd vaccine dose.  For more info about the booster shot visit the Harford County Health Dept. website.
