COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling

"One word: Excellent! I have run businesses worldwide and never seen a better process. Super Well Done!" - Anonymous

The chart below is the current CDC Recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.

To summarize current recommendations: Everyone aged 6 months and up should receive a primary series of COVID-19 vaccine. Everyone 5 years or older should receive an updated BIvalent booster at least 8 weeks after completing your primary vaccine series or at least 8 weeks after their most recent MONOvalent booster.

Butler Vaccine Clinic

Pediatric (6 month to under 12 years) Vaccines

For primary monovalent vaccine series, the BHS Vaccine Clinic is administering the Moderna vaccine for ages 6 months to under 5 years, and the Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 years to under 12 years at Butler Memorial Hospital Nixon-Sarver room (Tower Entrance), 1 Hospital Way, Butler, PA. Second doses will be given at least 4 weeks after the first.

For children 5 years to under 12, BHS Vaccine Clinic is also offering Pfizer BIVALENT boosters. This booster should be received at least 8 weeks after completing primary series. If a child previously received a MONOvalent booster, they may still receive a Bivalent booster as long as at least 8 weeks have passed since their most recent COVID-19 vaccine. (Children 12 years and older receive the adult bivalent booster; see below for schedule.)

Saturday clinics are currently available; all children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Novavax (protein subunit) Primary Vaccine
The BHS Vaccine Clinic will be offering the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine overlapping with other vaccine clinics. The Novavax vaccine is a protein subunit vaccine, meaning the recipient is vaccinated with proteins identical to the spike protein of the virus. There is no mRNA or adenovirus in the vaccine. The Novavax vaccine is authorized as a primary series only (cannot be used as a booster), for people aged 12 years and older. The vaccine series is two doses, four weeks apart. The CDC recommends a bivalent mRNA booster at least 8 weeks after the second dose of Novavax.

Novavax Vaccine Dates & Times
Saturday, December 3: 9:30 am – 12:30 pm at Butler Memorial Hospital, Nixon-Sarver Room

Adult Bivalent Booster
The BHS Vaccine Clinic is administering bivalent (updated) COVID-19 Pfizer booster shot at the BHS Crossroads Campus only, 127 Oneida Valley Road (1st floor), Butler, PA for ages 12 years & older. This vaccine is only for a booster, and includes targets for the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 strains (as well as original strain of the virus). If it has been more than 2 months since your last COVID-19 vaccine and you are 12 years of age or older, you should receive this booster. Please make sure to bring your vaccine card to your appointment. The original vaccines – called monovalent because they only target the original virus – are no longer authorized as boosters for people 12 and older.
