3rd Dose COVID Vaccines Now Available at Several Locations in Lenawee County


The CDC recommends a third dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine for those moderately or severely immunocompromised. 

 This includes but is not limited to:

  • People undergoing active treatment for solid tumor cancer or cancers of the blood, bone marrow or lymph node
  • People who have received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • People who have received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system for a transplant more than 2 years earlier
  • People with moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome
  • People with advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • People who are receiving active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune system

If you think you meet the qualifications for an additional dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, please discuss it with your medical provider.  If your doctor recommends this for you, you may receive your additional dose at locations providing COVID-19 vaccinations, including pharmacies, some healthcare providers and at the Lenawee County Health Department. Information regarding locations offering COVID-19 vaccinations in Lenawee County can be found at www.lenawee.mi.us.

Vaccinations should be given at least 28 days after the completion of the initial COVID-19 vaccine series.  Whenever possible, your vaccination should be given at least two weeks before initiation or resumption of immunosuppressive therapies.
