Jackson County Public Health says today booster doses are available for all three COVID-19 vaccines approved in the United States.

It says people eligible for booster shots can use any of the COVID-19 vaccines by Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson.

The health agency suggests some people might prefer the vaccine type they originally received while other people prefer a different booster source, noting “The federal and Western States Scientific Safety Workgroup recommendations now allow for this type of mix-and-match dosing for people eligible for Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson booster doses. This approach also allows people to get a booster dose at any location that provides COVID-19 vaccines, depending on advice from their health care provider, individual preference, availability, or convenience.”

Jackson County Public Health says Moderna booster dose recommendations allow people who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to get a booster shot at least six months after their second dose for people 65 years old and older, people at least 18 years old living in long-term care facilities, and people 50 years old and older “who have underlying medical conditions, increased risk of social inequities, or disabilities (including intellectual and developmental disabilities).”

It says other people also may get a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after their second dose, including people 18 years old and older who have underlying medical conditions, increased risk of social inequities or disabilities (including intellectual and developmental disabilities) and people at least 18 years old “who live or work in high-risk settings.”

The public health office says Johnson & Johnson booster dose recommendation applies to adults who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, advising they should get a booster dose at least two months after the first dose.

As coronavirus vaccination booster shots become available, Jackson County Public Health is reporting that the County had 380 new COVID-19 cases last week and a case rate of 170 cases per 100,000 population for a 2% decrease from the previous week.
Today, it is reporting 86 new cases of COVID-19, raising the County’s case total to 23,251.

It said this morning COVID-19 hospitalizations for Region 5 (Jackson and Josephine Counties) for “patients with COVID-19 is 66, and there are 18 patients with COVID-19 in the intensive care unit.”

Jackson County Public Health reminds residents they can call 211 for information about vaccine locations, visit the Oregon Health Authority Vaccine Finder site or visit Jackson County Health and Human Services.
