(STURGIS) – The public will have the chance to get the COVID-19 vaccine during a clinic next week.

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is holding a COVID vaccination clinic at Sturgis High School on Monday, November 22 from 9 AM until 12 PM. This clinic is in response to the demand for booster and primary series vaccinations.

The CHA will also be offering pediatric doses of vaccine to those aged 5-11 as well as all manufacturers’ booster doses to residents who meet at least 1 of the following criteria.

If you received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as your primary vaccine with the second dose being at least 6 months ago, you are eligible for a booster dose if you are: An individual who is age 65 or older; An individual who is age 18 or older with underlying medical conditions identified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC); An individual who is age 18 or older who lives in a long-term care setting, considering their individual risks and benefits; And an individual who is age 18 or older who works in a high risk setting, considering their individual risks and benefits.

For those who are age 18 and over who received a single dose J&J (Janssen) vaccine as their primary vaccine, at least 2 months ago, you should receive a single J&J booster dose.

As previously recommended, those who are immunocompromised should receive an additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine 28 days after their second dose to provide additional protection.

Booster dose eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. Individuals are encouraged to discuss mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccine with their primary care physician.

In order to schedule your first, second, third or booster dose at this clinic location, please go to the CHA website. Click Here. If you do not have access to the internet or need assistance, please call Your Local Health Department office and press option 7.
