Atlantic Health System is offering online scheduling for eligible individuals to receive their first or third dose of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines or their booster of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. (Your second dose will be scheduled at your first vaccine appointment.)
Please answer a series of questions about the patient's eligibility, pick a date and time and provide the patient's information. Vaccines are available at no cost to you.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people age 65 and older, residents in long-term care settings, and people ages 50 to 64 with underlying medical conditions receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech. Other groups may receive a booster shot based on their individual risk and benefit. Learn more from the CDC >
Atlantic Health System is closely monitoring any recommendations about boosters for vaccines made by other manufacturers. Boosters are not recommended at this time for those who received Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised receive a 3rd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Please discuss your eligibility and whether you should receive the third dose with your doctor before scheduling your appointment. You'll also need to know whether you received Pfizer or Moderna for your first two doses.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention definition of moderate to severely immunocompromised 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 two 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
