The Beaumont Public Health Department will start administering the booster dose of the COVID-19 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine next week.  You will need to bring your COVID-19 vaccination record to receive a booster dose.

Currently, eligibility for the Booster is based on the criteria below outline by CDC:

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

Please consult your primary care physician to see if you are a candidate for a booster.   More information will be announced when additional vaccine becomes available. Call 409-654-3647 for appointment.
