Third Dose Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

Lifestyle
September 13, 2021

The Marion County Health Department will begin to administer third doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine every Tuesday at the Salem office by appointment only. The first clinic will be on September 14, 2021.

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

If you are unsure if you are recommended for a third dose, please talk with your healthcare provider. The third dose of COVID-19 vaccine can be given anytime 28 days after receiving the second dose. You should receive the same brand of COVID-19 vaccine you received for your first and second doses, either Moderna or Pfizer.

Please call the office at 618/548-3878 to make your appointment. No walk-ins will be allowed. Thank you.
