CCHC is monitoring the changing guidelines for COVID vaccine boosters.
The CDC approval for boosters is for those 65 and over, at least 6 months after the 2nd dose of Pfizer; those 50-64 with risk factors for severe COVID:
- Overweight (body mass index over 25)
- Chronic kidney disease
- Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
- Cardiovascular disease/hypertension
- Chronic lung disease
- Sickle cell disease
- Neurodevelopmental disorders
- Medical-related technological dependence
Please do not call our offices to schedule a booster, unless you meet one or more of these criteria. We will update this website as eligibility expands.
Please note that Moderna and Janssen Johnson and Johnson vaccines will not be included with upcoming booster clinics.
Keep Scheduled Appointments, Take Medications as Prescribed
You should not avoid your regularly scheduled appointments out of concerns for COVID-19 unless otherwise instructed by your physician. If you are concerned about your symptoms, call your doctor before your appointment.
Call us First
If you experience symptoms, call your doctor and explain how you feel over the phone before heading to a doctor’s office, urgent care or the emergency room. Your doctor’s office or urgent care center will give you special instructions and prepare for your arrival so they can provide you the care you need while protecting others.
Your doctor will determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19 and what to do next. When you call ahead, you may be asked to wait at your car so a staff member can bring you a mask and escort you into the clinic. This will help prevent the spread of illness in the community.
Virtual Medical Visit
Virtual visits are now available at CCHC. A virtual visit will allow you to connect with our clinicians from any mobile device or computer with a webcam. Please call your primary care office or urgent care to see if this service is right for you.
