A LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY  

COVID VACCINE BOOSTER NEWS

The much publicized and anticipated BOOST doses of Moderna mRNA vaccine are finally ready to be provided.   News reports have chronicled the activity of the FDA, CDC and State Health Department during the entire process.  Now it’s all coming home to local providers to do the work.  Cowley County residents that have received COVID vaccinations are going to be able to schedule booster doses if they so desire. There are some conditions.  The boost dose should come 6 months after your initial series was completed (i.e., 180 days after your second dose).  We will review your records for you and make certain that you receive the correct dose for your age and risk factors.

To make it as simple as possible we ask you to call us, and we will get you scheduled quickly at a convenient time.  We will be offering afterhours and weekend clinics as well as onsite clinics for employee groups.

The approval of boost doses does NOT mean that you are not protected against COVID currently, so if your boost date is still weeks away don’t panic.  We have a great deal of evidence that shows the vaccines already provided are working well.  The additional doses being made available now are designed to stimulate the immune response and enhance the antibodies that you have already developed to help protect you as we head into the winter months when respiratory illnesses are most active.

If you have questions about if you need a booster please call us, we will be happy to talk with you about your specific health situation.
