What to Know about Second COVID-19 Booster

Testing is one of the things you can do to protect yourself. In March of this year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized a second booster dose of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for adults 50 and older and those 12 and older who are immunocompromised. A fourth shot is recommended for these groups because they are more likely to suffer severe outcomes and be hospitalized if they are infected with COVID-19, and a second booster shot can help strengthen
protection against new variants. In addition to these groups, individuals who received two doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine are also eligible for a second booster.

Chinese Hospital offers COVID-19 boosters at various clinic locations. Walk-ins are welcome at our Chinatown location, and appointments are recommended for other clinics. To request an appointment, please call 1-628-228-2828. Please bring your insurance card with you at the time of your visit.
