Please note the following additional guidance:
- At this time, we are offering Moderna third doses (not boosters) for those who were vaccinated with the two-dose Moderna vaccine. The FDA currently does not recommend an additional dose for those who received the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. We do not carry the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine; however, for information on Pfizer booster eligibility and local availability, visit www.maine.gov/covid19/vaccines.
- Bring your vaccination card with you to your appointment.
- You must wait at least 28 days after the second Moderna shot to receive the third dose.
- You should talk to your healthcare provider about your medical conditions, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you; however, proof of recommendation or diagnosis from a provider is not required to receive the third dose.
