Update on booster shots

Although there are many news reports related to COVID-19 vaccine booster shots, as of now, only immune compromised individuals are recommended to get a third dose of vaccine. Qualifying medical conditions are available on the CDC website. Third-dose appointments for those who are eligible are available through BJC’s public vaccine clinics. There is no official CDC/FDA recommendation for booster shots for anyone else yet. BJC is following the current guidance in its vaccine clinics. When a formal recommendation is made, we will provide information about timing and access.
