ADDITIONAL DOSE FOR IMMUNOCOMPROMISED PEOPLE

An additional dose is administered to people with compromised immune systems. The additional dose is intended to improve their response to their initial vaccine series.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) gave final approval to administer an additional dose to moderately- or severely- immunocompromised people (solid organ transplant recipients, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, HIV/AIDs, or chronic steroid use) who are more than 28 days past their second dose of either the Pfizer BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.

Snoqualmie Valley Hospital’s drive-thru vaccination site and primary care clinics are now offering an additional vaccine dose to those who qualify.  Proof of being immunocompromised is not required.

An additional dose is NOT currently approved for people who have received the Janssen (J&J) vaccine. An additional dose has NOT been approved for people who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or who:

  • have normal immune systems.
  • are mildly immunocompromised, or
  • live with or care for an immunocompromised person.
