COVID-19 Booster Dose Clinics Announced for Methodist EmployeesPublished: Oct. 6, 2021
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that a booster dose at least six months after the completion of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination is recommended as the nation and community continue their efforts against COVID-19.
The booster guidelines impact those 65 and older and those 18-64 who have underlying medical conditions and/or work or live in an environment that increases their risk of transmission or exposure – such as health care workers.
Methodist Health System will be offering Pfizer COVID booster doses for employees who received the initial two-dose course of Pfizer and had their second dose at least six months ago. Clinics will be conducted in a similar manner to those for the initial doses and flu shot clinics.
