All clinics can accommodate, first, second, and third dose options*, and a Southcoast Health primary care provider is NOT required.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated guidance for moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals.

The CDC now advises a third dose* of mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) for immunocompromised individuals.

Individuals who meet the following immunocompromised criteria set by the CDC:

  • Receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medication to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

The CDC has also issued recommendations on booster shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine only:

  • People 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • People aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine atleast 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • People aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutionalsetting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

Many of the people who are now eligible to receive a booster shot received their initial vaccine early in the vaccination program and will benefit from additional protection. With the Delta variant’s dominance as the circulating strain and cases of COVID-19 increasing significantly across the United States, a booster shot will help strengthen protection against severe disease in those populations who are at high-risk for exposure to COVID-19 or the complications from severe disease.

Mass COVID-19 Vaccination Locations


A legally authorized representative (usually a parent or guardian) must give permission (also called consent) for vaccination for someone under the age of 18, such as by completing a written consent form that the minor (the person under the age of 18) can bring to their vaccination appointment. We require all individuals under 18, unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, to download a copy of the consent form, have it signed, and show proof upon vaccination appointment. 

The parent or guardian does not need to go with the minor to their vaccination appointment to give consent.

COVID-19 Vaccination Updates, Guides & Resources

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending COVID-19 vaccination for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future. More information is available on CDC.gov: COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding.

Vaccination Facts & Myths

Thank you for your trust, patience, and support, and please stay tuned to this page for updates. A few final reminders:

  • While awaiting COVID-19 vaccination, and even after being vaccinated, please stay safe by wearing a mask whenever you’re in a public area, staying at least 6 feet away from people with whom you do not live, washing and sanitizing your hands regularly, and refraining from touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible.
  • Even after being vaccinated, we urge patients to continue wearing a face covering or mask. We are encouraging everyone to wear a mask in public and to contribute to a shared national effort of saving every possible life. When you protect yourself and your loved ones, you are also protecting our frontline healthcare heroes.
  • The vaccine is free of charge for recipients, but if you have health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, please be prepared to share that information during the scheduling and appointment process.
