10/22/2021 COVID-19 Boosters Approved

 

For Immediate Release: October 22, 2021

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has approved a “booster” dose for the Moderna mRNA and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 vaccines in certain populations; they also recommended a booster dose for those in high risk occupational and institutional settings. The ACIP approval, the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidance for use are important steps to advise our vaccination processes and keep Gallatin County residents safe and healthy. Even with these booster dose approvals, Gallatin County’s top priority is distributing vaccines to unvaccinated people. 

Please read the full press release here.

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Bozeman Health and Gallatin City-County Health Department (GCCHD) are providing combined clinics for both Moderna and Pfizer, hosted at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital.
