COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling

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

Now scheduling Pfizer pediatric (ages 5-11) COVID-19 vaccine! The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 years old!

In addition to continuing new vaccinations, Butler and Clarion are now offering COVID-19 booster vaccinations.

Anyone 12 years of age and older may be eligible for a booster, depending on how long it has been since previous vaccination.

Vaccine Type for Original Series

Timing

Age

Recommendation

Pfizer

5 months or more since 2nd shot

50 years or older

SHOULD get booster

12 to 50 years

MAY get booster

Moderna

6 months or more since 2nd shot

50 years or older

SHOULD get booster

12 to 50 years

MAY get booster

J&J

2 months or more since shot

12 years and up

SHOULD get booster

People who “should” get a booster are strongly encouraged to do so, because of their risks of severe illness if infected. For people who “may” get a booster, the benefits of the booster are significant, but you may discuss further with your healthcare provider.

Note that you will be turned away from receiving a booster if you do not meet the time requirement from your previous dose (don’t come early or “round up”).

People under 12 are not eligible for boosters at this time.

If you already received a 3rd dose of Pfizer or Moderna because you are immunocompromised, you should receive a booster 5 months or more after your 3rd vaccine.

The FDA and CDC have authorized a “mix and match” approach for boosters. This means that a booster shot does NOT need to be the same vaccine as you originally received. In particular, people who received J&J vaccine originally may want to select Moderna or Pfizer vaccine for their booster.

Butler sites (at Butler Memorial Hospital and at Crossroads Campus) offer only Pfizer vaccine; our Clarion Hospital site offers Pfizer and Moderna vaccines at different times. No BHS site offers J&J vaccine.
