Recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (or CDC) state that some individuals should receive a third dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations. This includes individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.
Madison Regional Health System will be offering the additional dose to those who qualify.
Those who qualify include those with conditions such as organ or stem cell transplants, those with advanced or untreated HIV infection, active recipients of treatment for cancer, and those who are taking some medications that weaken the immune system.
More information on who qualifies for the additional COVID-19 dose can be found here.
To schedule an appointment, contact Madison Regional Health at (605) 256-6551.
