Yes, you need to get that booster! And we have it here for you. Just give us a call.
Happy Holidays to all. We are excited that the CDC has now officially approved SARS-Cov2 boosters for ALL persons age 18 and up.
We have the Pfizer and Moderna boosters in stock. Please call (704) 892-5454 to schedule your booster. Instead of the chain pharmacy, we feel that it is best to get the booster from trained nurses in your medical home here at Davidson Family Medicine. We will add the booster to your vaccine card at the time of vaccination.
Details: If you have had the second Pfizer or Moderna shot at least 6 months ago or a Johnson and Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago, you are now encouraged to get the booster.
For those having received J&J, we would recommend either a Moderna or Pfizer booster as the dose of mRNA is about the same. This mRNA vaccine will augment the J&J vaccine’s effectiveness.
For those having received a Pfizer or Moderna primary series, we recommend either Pfizer or Moderna as a booster. Staying with your original vaccine, however, will give you an idea of any possible side effects as these will be similar to your second vaccine’s side effects if any.
The protection from the booster will probably last at least 7-9 months.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you!
