HealthWorks Immunization Clinic Now Offering COVID-19 Vaccine Booster for Everyone Ages 18 and Older
HealthWorks Immunization Clinic, a service of Hattiesburg Clinic and Forrest General Hospital, is now offering COVID-19 vaccine boosters for everyone ages 18 and older who received the Moderna®, Pfizer® and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen® COVID-19 vaccine. This comes after a recent approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Although the vaccine booster is available to everyone ages 18 and older, the following individuals who received Pfizer or Moderna should get a vaccine booster:
- 50 years and older
- Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
Individuals may get a booster at least six (6) months after completing their primary COVID-19 vaccination series.
For those who are 18 years or older and had the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine two (2) or more months ago, the booster is also available.
This approval also outlines that vaccinated patients can choose a different vaccine from their original COVID-19 vaccination. Appointments may be booked through Iris, Hattiesburg Clinic’s patient portal, or by calling (601) 261-1620.
