VACCINE UPDATE

Vaccine doses will be provided to all patients or community members at no out-of-pocket cost. However, the Richland Hospital will be charging an administration fee. The administration fee will be 100% paid by your health insurance plan, Medicare, Medicaid, Employer, or Federal Government, so please bring your insurance card and Identification with you to the Vaccination Clinic.

*Bring your red, white, and blue Medicare card or Medicare Number when you go to get your vaccine, so our health care provider or pharmacy can bill Medicare. Medicare covers the COVID-19 vaccine, so there’s no cost to you.

ADDITIONAL DOSES

Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been 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

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

FIRST COVID BOOSTER

Everyone ages 12 and older is recommended to get a booster dose for the best protection against COVID-19 and circulating variants.

Booster doses are strongly recommended for people who are at the greatest risk for severe disease, such as people who live in long-term care settings.

If you are eligible, you can get your COVID-19 booster dose:

  • At least 5 months after you got your second dose of your Pfizer or Moderna primary vaccine series.
  • At least 2 months after you got your Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

*Individuals 12 years or older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised should get a booster dose:

• Three months after third (additional) dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine - for a total of four doses.

• Two months after second (additional) dose if the first dose was a Johnson & Johnson vaccine - for a total of three doses.
