Do I need a booster dose?

COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older in the United States for the prevention of COVID-19. There is currently no FDA-approved or FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine for children younger than age 6 months. CDC recommends that people stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination.

There is no preferential recommendation for the use of any one COVID-19 vaccine over another when more than one recommended and age-appropriate vaccine is available.

People ages 65 years and older should only receive the recommended number of dose(s) of updated (2023–2024 Formula) mRNA or Novavax vaccine; an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine is not recommended at this time.

The COVID-19 vaccination schedule for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised allows for additional doses. Individuals may receive 1 or more additional doses of an updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine (i.e., Moderna, Novavax, Pfizer-BioNTech) following the last recommended updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine dose.

The CDC reports COVID is a threat to older individuals and those with underlying conditions and has endorsed the Advisory Council on Immunization Practice recommendation that individuals aged 65 and older should receive an additional dose of the current COVID-19 vaccine 4 months after the previous dose.

Lewis Drug does participate in the Bridge Access Program, which may help those that are uninsured receive the vaccine at no cost.

Who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?

Pharmacists at Lewis Drug pharmacy locations are authorized by the PrepAct to administer vaccinations for patients ages 3 years and older.

Children under the age of 18 will need parent/guardian authorization and they must be present at the vaccination.
