  • Two of the following: Statement from another person; Current mail; School records.

For age, such proof may include:

  • Driver’s license or non-driver ID;
  • Birth certificate issued by a state or local government;
  • Current U.S passport or valid foreign passport;
  • Permanent resident card;
  • Certificate of Naturalization or Citizenship;

COVID Vaccine Schedule

Here’s the most up-to-date vaccine schedule provided by the CDC.

There are a lot of moving parts currently.

Consider COVID vaccination like this: the primary series and the booster doses.

If you are in need of a primary series, you would receive from us Moderna or Pfizer if you are 3 years or older, or Novavax if you are 18 years or older.

If you are in need of a booster series, everyone 5 and older is eligible for one booster shot currently with Moderna or Pfizer. Everyone 50+ is eligible for second booster shot with Moderna or Pfizer.

People with rare disorders that make the immune system weak need an extra primary series dose of Moderna and Pfizer, and they have special requirements for timing of those.  

Speak to our staff or your physician to make your plan.

FAQ

Simply put, the FDA and CDC have authorized patients to request and receive a different manufacturer than their original series for their booster doses.

  • If you received Moderna, you can get Moderna, Pfizer or JJ
  • If you received Pfizer, you can get Pfizer, Moderna, or JJ
  • If you received JJ, you can get JJ, Pfizer, or Moderna

What should you do? Well that’s up to you and your doctor.

All vaccines show strong, lasting protection against severe infection especially after a booster dose of the same series.

Some folks are pointing to advantages of adding a JJ to an mRNA series or vice versa. JJ to Moderna seems to be the best strategy.

A recent Lancet article has shown a Moderna booster after a Pfizer series is superior protection.

It’s all legal, so we’ll give you whichever vaccine you choose. Please make this decision after consulting your clinical team.
