Booster Shots and 3rd Dose Shots Moderna
At this time Moderna has not been approved for booster shots, but has been approved for third dose shots. Third dose shots have been approved only for adults 18+ who have undergone solid organ transplantation, or who are diagnosed with conditions that are considered to have an equivalent level of immunocompromise. If you fall into that category, please contact your health care provider. Pfizer Pfizer has been approved for booster shots and third dose shots for those who are immunocompromised. Minnesotans who received the Pfizer vaccine can get a booster shot at least six months after their initial series based on CDC guidance:
people 65 years and older and 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
people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission due to occupational or institutional setting (e.g. frontline medical workers, teachers, and first responders) may receive a booster
Goodhue County Health & Human Services is not administering COVID Vaccine to the general public at this time. If you fit into one of the categories above, call your health care provider or check out our "Where Can I Get a COVID Vaccine" webpage for more information on vaccine providers.
