COVID-19 MODERNA VACCINE 3rd DOSES

Update 9/22/2021: 

Official guidelines have not been adopted or published regarding the FDA advisory committee’s 3rd dose recommendations, therefore, we are only offering 3rd dose vaccines for people who meet the criteria below. 

We will continue to keep our patients updated on this evolving process. 

 

JFHC is offering 3rd doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to JFHC patients who meet the following clinical criteria:

  1. Solid organ transplant recipients

OR

  1. Moderately or severely immunocompromised individuals as defined by the following:
  • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
  • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge, Wiskott-Aldrich syndromes)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, TNF blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.

On the afternoon of Friday September 17th, the FDA advisory committee announced that they would support a booster of the Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine for people 65+ years of age.  ​This recommendation still must be officially adopted by the FDA, the CDC, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).  In addition, we are still awaiting more data regarding 3rd doses of Modera, which has yet to be released for review.

Note: Many individuals may have underlying health conditions that put them at risk for serious COVID related illness.  If you feel that your circumstances warrant a booster vaccine, but does not meet the above criteria, you may schedule a visit with your JFHC primary care provider or send a MyChart message requesting a review of your medical chart.

For non-JFHC patients looking for the Moderna booster, please  follow the  Vaccine finder link https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/   to find your nearest option or call Clallam County Department of Health Vaccine hotline at https://www.clallam.net/coronavirus/vaccine.html  for further guidance.

For qualifying JFHC patients, you may schedule a Moderna booster visit by:

  • Calling (360) 683-5900
  • MyChart scheduling
  • During routine office visit
