HRH is following CDC guidelines for administering the third vaccine, which for most people it recommends that you receive it 8 months after receiving the second vaccine in that series for either Moderna or Pfizer. (As an example, if your second Moderna vaccine was February 1, 2021, then you will be eligible to receive the booster on October 1.) Please continue to get the vaccine that you have been receiving. When vaccines began, there was a priority for first responders and health care workers, elderly people over 65, and people who were immunocompromised by several conditions. By following the CDC guidelines, these same people will receive a booster ahead of others who do not have such compromised health issues.
Please, if you are able to do so, use this system to schedule your vaccine; if you have difficulty, ask a family member or friend to assist you. We will schedule your appointment for you if you do not have help. Just call the hospital (254-580-8500) and let them know you need assistance to schedule your vaccine.
As always, Hill Regional Hospital suggests that you talk to your personal physician about taking this vaccine. Doctors' offices and pharmacies are also offering the vaccines and you may prefer to use that venue.
A couple of notes:
- We have no information at this time about a booster (second vaccine) for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
- All the vaccines are open to all who are 18 and older. However, teens between 12-17 are ONLY approved for the Pfizer vaccine. They must have parental consent and be accompanied by a parent or guardian when they arrive.
- Anyone receiving either second or third vaccines, MUST BRING THEIR VACCINE CARD WITH THEM! Please be sure to also bring your ID and wear a mask.
