The Garrett County Health Department is now able to schedule both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 boosters based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s revised emergency use authorization and guidance from the Maryland Department of Health. Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 boosters can be scheduled once a supply is received.
“The availability of additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine has gotten confusing for the public because of the different versions and swiftly changing recommendations,” said Garrett County Health Officer Bob Stephens. “Fortunately, we are now able to schedule COVID-19 booster vaccinations using the guidelines provided to us by the FDA and MDH. Our priority is still to encourage individuals who are not yet vaccinated to schedule a vaccine as soon as possible. The unvaccinated are at highest risk of having a poor outcome if infected and being vaccination is the best way to protect our friends and family from spreading this virus.”
