OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City-County Health Department is now offering booster doses of all of the COVID-19 vaccines to eligible Oklahomans.

People who are eligible for a Moderna booster must have received their second Moderna vaccine at least six months ago.

Those who are eligible for a Moderna booster include the following:

  • People who are 65 and older
  • People who are 18 and older who live in long-term care settings
  • People who are 18 and older with existing medical conditions
  • People who are 18 and older who live or work in high-risk settings.

Johnson & Johnson boosters are recommended for anyone who is 18-years-old and older who received their initial vaccine at least two months ago.

OCCHD is still offering Pfizer boosters to anyone who received their second Pfizer dose at least six months ago.

Those who are eligible for a Pfizer booster include the following:

  • People who are 65 and older
  • People who are 18 and older who live in long-term care settings
  • People who are 18 and older with existing medical conditions
  • People who are 18 and older who live or work in high-risk settings.

Organizers say they will allow patients to choose the booster brand they would like to receive, but a two-dose mRNA vaccine series must still be completed using the same brand for both vaccinations.

Officials say patients will not need to provide proof of a medical condition or occupational hazard in order to receive a booster dose.

COVID-19 vaccinations, including boosters and third doses, are available weekdays at OCCHD’s three public health clinics. To find an appointment for the special booster events, visit VaxOKC.com or call 405-425-4489 to make an appointment.
