RCPH will Host a COVID-19 Booster Clinic at the West End Plaza on Nov. 16th

 

Rowan County Public Health will be offering a COVID-19 Booster Clinic on Tuesday, November 16th from 9 am to 4pm at the West End Plaza (1935 Jake Alexander Blvd., West, Salisbury) in the old J. C. Penney building. Appointments are recommended and can be made here. However, walk-ins are welcome. Please note that this clinic will only offer booster vaccines; with all three approved boosters being made available.

 The Pfizer and the Moderna COVID-19 booster shots are recommended for individuals who received their second dose at least six months ago and who are at high risk for severe illness or exposure based on their age, profession, living setting or health conditions. This includes people who are:

  • 65 years or older, and
  • 18 years or older who: 
  1. live or work in a nursing home or long-term care facility;  
  2. have underlying medical conditions; 
  3. work in high-risk settings like healthcare workers, teachers and childcare providers or food workers; or,
  4. live or work in a place where many people live together (for example, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, migrant farm housing, dormitories or other group living settings in colleges or universities).

 For those individuals that received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 shot, the Johnson and Johnson booster shot is recommended for individuals ages 18 and older who were vaccinated at least two months ago.

In addition to this, it is important that individuals are aware that they can now mix and match their booster vaccine, if they choose to.   Recent evidence has shown that both the Moderna and the Pfizer boosters do raise one’s antibody levels more than the Johnson & Johnson booster vaccine. With that being known, we do highly encourage you to speak with your primary care provider or one of our staff if you should have questions about which booster may be right for you and/or your family members. 

 If you should have any additional questions or need assistance in setting up an appointment, please call 980-432-1800.
