Orchard Health Care is conducting our Covid-19 booster clinics with Moderna vaccine according to CDC guidelines, which currently allow everyone over 65 and others over 50 with “medical conditions” that are specified on the CDC website to get the booster.
Important to use all doses in each vial
However, there is a true imperative to administer all the doses available in a single vial without wastage. Each vial contains 28-30 doses and must be used the same day it is opened.
Open boosters to others to finish up vials
Consequently, if our web schedule signups have not filled out the 30 or 60 doses planned for a given clinic, we will open it to anyone over 50 who is at least 6 months from their last basic immunization (second Pfizer or Moderna, or primary Johnson & Johnson).
Tomorrow November 8 has open shots available
Our clinic tomorrow is undersubscribed by about 10 doses. So if you are over 50 and over 6 months from last shot, please sign up on the our vaccine scheduler for tomorrow. Or call the office tomorrow morning to register.
