Important Information About a Third Dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine

Per the CDC’s recommendations, CHC is now administering third doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to established CHC patients who are moderately to severely immunocompromised. At this time, only immunocompromised patients who receive their primary care services at CHC are eligible to receive a third dose of the vaccine.

Patients must have received their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine more than 28 days prior to be eligible for a third dose. Third doses will be matched with the original mRNA vaccine product received. If this is not available or unknown, either Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine product may be administered.

To receive a third dose at this time, you must be an established CHC patient who meets one or more of the below criteria. At this time we are not able to give you a third dose if you came to us for a COVID-19 test or vaccine but have not established CHC as your primary care provider and visited us for a primary care service.

  • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
  • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within two years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF) blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory
