COVID-19 third-dose shots for immunocompromised people now available

8/20/2021

FAYETTEVILLE – August 20, 2021 – Starting Aug. 20, Cape Fear Valley Health’s COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be offering third-dose shots for immunocompromised individuals. Booster doses for non-immunocompromised individuals who have gone at least 8 months since their second dose will be available starting Monday, Sept. 20.

Individuals must self-attest that they are immunocompromised. These additional third-dose shots are only for people who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Information on how to provide additional shots for patients who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is not yet available. While it is preferred that patients receive a booster that matches their initial two doses, it is possible to mix the vaccine series between the two mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderns).

Immunocompromised patients must be at least 28 days post their second dose to receive their third dose. When available after Sept. 20, non-immunocompromised patients must be at least 8 months post their second dose to receive a new booster.

The following is information on our COVID-19 vaccine clinics through Sept. 17. Walk-ins are welcome until clinic capacity is reached, but appointments are preferred for first or third doses. Make appointments by visiting www.capefearvalley.com/covid19.

We are currently vaccinating anyone ages 12 and older. All clinics are now offering the Pfizer Vaccine for first doses. Vaccines are also available at Cape Fear Valley Medical Group Primary Care physician offices if you are a patient of those clinics.

NOTE: Those under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present.

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred for first or third doses. Appointments are not required for your second dose, but we do ask that you return to the same location where you received your first dose to receive your second dose.

We have opened appointments through Sept. 17. Patients can now make appointments at any of the available times throughout this time, regardless of which week it is.
