Update on Booster Shots
Anyone over age 65 who got their 2nd Pfizer shot more than 6 months ago can make an appointment for a booster shot at this time at Vermont pharmacies.
The CDC has authorized booster shots for people over 65 who received their 2nd shot of Pfizer over 6 months ago. The Vermont Dept. of Health is staggering the registration based on age, however many pharmacies and medical practices are not. If you are hosting a vaccine clinic through a pharmacy they should include everyone over 65 at the clinic, but be sure to verify this. Participants who are eager to get a booster can make an appointment through a pharmacy or health care provider without regard to the age banding.
If a participant wants to register through the VDH site they will need to wait for the age banding to open for their age. https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/vaccine/getting-covid-19-vaccine
