Third Dose: A third dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna) is now part of the recommended primary vaccination series for immunocompromised individuals. Studies have indicated that this population is unable to develop the expected high level of protection against COVID-19 infection with a two dose series.

- You are moderately or severely immune compromised due to a medical condition or immunosuppressive medication.
- You have already received two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna.
- At least 28 days have passed since your second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna.

Booster Dose: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to allow for use of a single booster dose, to be administered at least six months after completion of the primary series.

If you meet the following criteria, you are eligible for a Pfizer booster dose through the Chemung County Health Department. You must sign an attestation form on-site stating that you meet the eligibility criteria.
- You are 65 years of age and older;
- You are 18 through 64 years of age at high risk of severe COVID-19; and
