A third dose of mRNA COVID-19 (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine is now recommended for moderately and severely immunocompromised people. This priority group consists of patients who self-attest to being moderately to severely immunocompromised. For self-attestation, you should talk to your healthcare provider about your medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you. The CDC defines moderately to severely immunocompromised as those 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

Moderna vaccine is available at the Health Department located at 200 Gamble Dr., Lincolnton, NC 28092. If you have insurance, please bring your insurance card with you.

While vaccines provide the best protection from COVID-19, treatment options such as Monoclonal Antibodies are available if you test positive. If taken early, they can reduce the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death. Ask your doctor about Monoclonal Antibodies or call the Combat COVID Monoclonal Antibodies Call Center at 1-877-332-6585.
