COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE

Check back here for daily updates on the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Update on Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccination

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announces that children 5-11 years old are now eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses 21 days apart for full protection, and is the first and only vaccine currently available for this age group.

 

We are now vaccinating this age group at our location on 807 W Layton Ave. Walk-ins are accepted at this time. 

 

Please check back our website for updates. 

Booster Update

DHS supports the CDC recommendation that certain populations who have increased risk of exposure to or transmission of COVID-19 receive a booster dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after having received their second dose of the Moderna vaccine, and that individuals age 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine receive a booster dose at least two months after their primary vaccine dose.

 

For individuals who received a Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster dose at 6 months or more after their initial series:

 

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster doses.

Additional Dose

An “additional dose” is recommended for people who may not have received adequate protection from their initial vaccine series. On August 13, the FDA updated the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) for the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to allow for additional doses to very specific groups of people. The additional dose can be administered any time, as long as it is at least 28 days after completing the initial two-dose mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series (such as for Pfizer and Moderna).

Second Dose Information:

Be sure to check the back of your vaccination card for the return date. The walk-in clinic will take place from 9:30-4:30 on that day. 
 
The second dose will be administered at the same time and same location as your first dose.  There is no need to contact the pharmacy about scheduling an appointment- we're expecting you!

If you are unable to receive your second dose on the assigned date, please contact the pharmacy so we can help schedule a time that is convenient for you.
