Pittsylvania/Danville Health District now offering booster shots for all three COVID-19 vaccines

Booster shots for all three COVID-19 vaccines are now available at three mobile vaccination clinics in the Pittsylvania/Danville Health District.

In order to receive a booster vaccine, individuals must wait at least six months from the date of their second mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine or at least two months from the date of their Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

According to CDC guidance, those eligible for the booster shot include:

  • Certain individuals who completed the mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) primary series at least six months ago:
  • All individuals aged 18 years or older who received the Johnson & Johnson primary vaccine dose at least two months ago.

Individuals will be able to choose which vaccine product they would like to receive, whether that be Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. VDH urges that individuals consult with their doctor or health care provider to make that decision.

In addition, the Moderna vaccine and the single-dose Johnson and Johnson will also be available for anyone 18 and older. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be offered to anyone 12 and older. A parent or guardian must accompany anyone under the age of 18.
