Who needs a third dose of COVID-19 Vaccine?
The NYSDOH has authorized a third COVID-19 vaccine dose only for New Yorkers with moderately or severely compromised immune systems. This follows the CDC recommendation on August 14, 2021. Eligible New Yorkers can receive their third dose 28 days after completion of their two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series.
The CDC is currently recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose, including people who have:
• Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood;
• Received an organ transplant and are taking medications to suppress the immune system;
• Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system;
• Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome);
• Advanced or untreated HIV infection;
• Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids, cancer chemotherapy that causes severe immunosuppression, or other medications that may suppress your immune response.
The Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) amendment for an additional dose is not intended for persons with chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, for which there might be mild associated immunosuppression, nor for residents of long-term care facilities who do not otherwise meet the moderate to severe immunocompromised criteria.
Madison County Health Department is not providing a third dose at this time. Please contact your healthcare provider to find out if a third dose is appropriate for you, and if it is, where you may be able to receive one.
