Additional vaccine opportunities
- Moderna Booster Dose: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel voted Thursday (10/14/2021) in favor of authorizing booster shots of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to people 65 and older, those 18 to 64 with risk factors for severe COVID-19, and those whose jobs put them at high risk for serious complications of COVID-19, such as health care workers. Moderna booster should be authorized for these groups at least six months after receiving their second dose. The Moderna booster consists of a 50-microgram dose, half the normal dose of the shot.
- Pfizer-BioNTech Booster Dose: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have authorized booster doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Nearly 68 million Americans received two doses of the Moderna vaccine and an additional 14.7 million got one does of a single-shot Johnson & Johnson (or Janssen) vaccine. A decision on booster shots of those vaccines could come in the next few weeks. The final recommendations for you to receive booster doses are as follows:
- people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot
- people aged 50-64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot
- people aged 18-49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster
- people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional settings may receive a booster shot - to include nurses and teachers.
The booster is to be given at least six months after people get their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
- Docket Mobile App: Minnesotans can now easily access their immunization records through their smartphones or other mobile devices by using an app called Docket.
With Docket, users can see their immunization history from Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC), check what vaccines they or their family may need in the future, and share immunization records for health, school, travel, and other purposes.
If you cannot access your or your family's immunization records through the Docket App, it may be because of incorrect information in MIIC, such as spelling, other names, old records, missing phone number or email, etc. You can:
- Contact your health care provider to update contact information on your MIIC Immunization record.
- Complete a MIIC Immunization Record Update Request. Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) staff will review the form and update the contact information on the MIIC immunization record. If staff are unable to find a MIIC record, they will contact you. Requests will be processed in the order they are received.
- More information can be found on the MDH Website.
- Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine: The vaccine is now approved for Americans 16 years of age and older. The vaccine continues to be available to Americans between 12 and 15 years of age under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Two other vaccines – the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the two-dose Moderna vaccine – are authorized for Americans 18 years of age and older. FDA is continuing its review and approval process for these two vaccines as well as for use of Pfizer in people younger than 16.
