Reminder: Covid Booster Clinic for ages 18+ this Wednesday

Moderna vaccine boosters are available at a special Southborough clinic this week.

Southborough’s Board of Health is offering a Covid Vaccine Booster Clinic tomorrow, featuring the Moderna vaccine. That vaccine is only approved for use in ages 18+.

The clinic is the afternoon of Wednesday, December 22nd. As of 11:00 am this morning, there were 20 slots remaining. (They could go quickly, so take advantage now if you are looking to get a shot before the holidays.)

The Moderna vaccine is for ages 18+. It is available as a booster for those who received the J&J shot at least 2 months prior or completed the 2-shot Pfizer/Moderna vaccinations at least 6 months prior.*

If you are unsure if you qualify or have a question concerning vaccines and boosters, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Southborough Health Department at 508-281-8983.

Last week, Northborough hosted a successful booster clinic at Algonquin for 16-18 year olds from Northborough, Southborough, and Boylston.

*The online system wouldn’t allow appointments for completely unvaccinated individuals at this time. (I presume that is because the dosage for the primary series is higher than the booster.) However, it was allowing those who previously received only one dose of Moderna to schedule an appointment. If you began your primary series months ago, but never completed it, you may want to reach out to the health dept directly to make sure you take the correct steps to get the right dose.
