The Tewksbury Board of Health and Senior Center will hold a Moderna booster clinic at the Senior Center on Thursday, Dec. 16 from 9 to 10:45 a.m.
Appointments are required. If you wish to reserve a spot, CLICK HERE.
Note that the CDC allows for a “mix and match” approach to vaccines. Data has shown that those who originally received Johnson & Johnson and boost with Moderna have a 76-fold increase in antibodies, a 35-fold increase in antibodies with Pfizer and a fourfold increase with another Johnson & Johnson vaccine. For those who have previously received an mRNA vaccine, you can choose any vaccine, although data shows an additional mRNA vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna) may be more advantageous than Johnson & Johnson.
If you choose Moderna, the dose will be 50% of the original dose. The other vaccine booster doses are the same as the original vaccine. Here is more information on boosters.
Organizers ask that you wear a mask to your appointment and bring your original Covid vaccination card, your health insurance card and a photo ID. The booster is free for everyone.
