Additional Vaccination Options


Booster Dose Update

DHS recommends that the following populations SHOULD receive a booster dose of Pfizer at least 6 months after receiving their second dose of Pfizer in order to further strengthen their immunity:

  • People 65 years and older
  • All residents in long-term care
  • People ages 50–64 years with certain underlying medical conditions 
    • Cancer
    • Chronic kidney disease
    • Chronic lung diseases, including COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma (moderate-to-severe), interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and pulmonary hypertension
    • Dementia or other neurological conditions
    • Diabetes (type 1 or type 2)
    • Down syndrome
    • Heart conditions (such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies or hypertension)
    • HIV infection
    • Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system)
    • Liver disease
    • Overweight and obesity
    • Pregnancy
    • Sickle cell disease or thalassemia
    • Smoking, current or former
    • Solid-organ or blood stem cell transplant
    • Stroke or cerebrovascular disease, which affects blood flow to the brain
    • Substance use disorders

DHS recommends that the following populations MAY receive a booster dose of Pfizer at least six months after receiving their second dose of Pfizer vaccine, after considering their individual risks and benefits:

  • People ages 18–49 years with certain underlying medical conditions (listed above)
  • People ages 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of their job or institutional settings. Occupations at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission include front line essential workers and health care workers: 
    • First responders (health care workers, firefighters, police, staff at congregate-care facilities)
    • Education staff (teachers, support staff, childcare workers)
    • Food and agriculture workers
    • Manufacturing workers
    • Corrections workers
    • S. Postal Service workers
    • Public transit workers
    • Grocery store workers
    • This list could be updated in the future

At this time, the Pfizer booster authorization only applies to people whose primary series was Pfizer vaccine. People in the recommended groups who got the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine will likely need a booster shot in the near future. More data on the effectiveness and safety of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots are expected soon.


Third Dose Recommendation

If you believe that you are immunocompromised and may qualify for the third dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, Calumet County Public Health recommends that you talk to your medical provider:

  1. To determine if you are eligible to receive a third dose of vaccine (Are you moderately or severely immunocompromised?), and
  2. If you are eligible, determine the best timing to receive your third dose to both maximize the effectiveness of the vaccine and minimize any impact on your treatment plan.

A third dose can be given 28 or more days after your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, but only your provider can advise you when vaccination would fit best into your plan of care. 

There currently is no recommendation for individuals who were vaccinated with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to receive an additional dose.

Who Needs an Additional COVID-19 Vaccine?

The CDC recommends the 3rd dose of COVID-19 vaccine for moderately to severely immunocompromised people. This includes people who have completed a vaccination series with Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna and are/have:

  • Receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

Pfizer Vaccine FDA Approval

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted its full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine will now be marketed under the name Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in people 16 years of age and older. The Pfizer vaccine is also still available under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for people ages 12 to 15 and for an additional dose for people who are immunocompromised. Additional Details
