Westminster, MD (October 4, 2021) – The Carroll County Health Department is planning three Pfizer booster shot clinics at area senior centers to help make it easy for qualified residents to get their boosters.
Westminster Senior Center
South Carroll Senior and Community Center
North Carroll Senior Center
People who qualify for Pfizer booster shots must have received their 2nd Pfizer shot at least 6 months ago. According to the CDC:
You should get a booster if you are:
Age 18-49 with underlying medical conditions
Registration is required for these clinics. Register online at https://cchd.maryland.gov/covid-19-booster-shots/ or call 410-876-4848 for assistance.
Many people have already received their booster shots at their healthcare provider’s office, pharmacy, long-term care facility, and other locations.
People aged 12 and up can also register to get their 1st or 2nd Pfizer dose at these clinics. The Health Department is offering 1st, 2nd, and 3rd doses of Pfizer and Moderna, as well as Johnson & Johnson when available, at their small Health Department clinics. Third doses are for people who are immunocompromised. Space is very limited at these clinics, so booster shots are not available.
The CDC will be reviewing data in the coming weeks and will make recommendations about those who got the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
