Information About Booster Shots and 3rd doses

Booster Shots

The FDA and CDC have authorized booster shots of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines for certain individuals. Please review the following information to determine if you are eligible for a booster shot.

If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you are eligible for any vaccine booster shot, if you are 18 years of age or older, two months following your initial vaccination.

If you received the Pfizer or Moderna* vaccine, the following groups are eligible for any vaccine booster shot six months following your initial vaccination:

*The Moderna booster shot is half of the initial vaccine dose.

Though no proof or doctor's note will be required at HCHD-run clinics, individuals will be asked to self-attest that they are eligible for a booster shot. Documentation of your previous vaccine series will be required. Either bring your vaccine card or verify your vaccine information has been accurately recorded in Immunet, the State of Maryland Immunization database. Individuals should talk to their healthcare provider about their specific situation, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

Find more information about Booster Shots from the CDC here. Booster shots are also available from local pharmacies, retail stores, and/or your medical provider. Individuals who need assistance scheduling an appointment should call 410-313-6284.

3rd doses

The Health Department continues to administer 3rd doses of mRNA (Pfizer and Moderna) vaccine to individuals considered moderately to severely immunocompromised at all Health Department-run clinics. Individuals should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

The CDC provides additional information about those individuals that may meet the criteria for immunocompromised here. Though no proof or doctor's note will be required at HCHD-run clinics, individuals will be asked to self-attest that they are immunocompromised and eligible for a 3rd vaccine dose. Please bring your vaccine card with you to verify the vaccine type you should receive.

Pfizer Vaccine For Ages 12-15

Hear from a real HoCo family: why they got vaxxed, and why you should, too.

Ready to get your shot? Visit bit.ly/HoCOVIDVaccine to find a clinic that's right for you.

The FDA and CDC have approved the use of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents ages 12-15. This means our national vaccine safety system has carefully analyzed the data from the clinical trials for this age group and determined that the vaccine is safe and effective. 

The more people who are vaccinated, the closer we all come to ending this pandemic. Beginning to vaccinate adolescents means a safer experience for in-person school, in-person summer camp, and while around high-risk family members. Parents of children ages 12-17 can register for a Pfizer vaccine clinic from the list below or use the State vaccine locator to find other Pfizer vaccine clinics in the area.

Adolescents with disabilities:

Parents/caregivers of adolescents, ages 12-15, who are homebound due to a physical/mental impairment or who have a developmental disability requiring special accommodations: Call us at 410-313-6284 for assistance scheduling their vaccination appointment.

Health Department Vaccination Clinics

The following clinics are open to anyone eligible for vaccine. As planning continues for the approval of booster shots, an appointment system is now being used for all clinics at the Health Department to ensure an efficient vaccination process. Walk-ups will not be accepted at any upcoming clinic where "appointment required" is noted. If you are unable to complete the online registration, call 410-313-6284.
