Additional COVID-19 Vaccine Dose for Immunocompromised


Additional Dose for Immunocompromised

An additional dose of the Moderna vaccine is now available for immunocompromised Veterans and those family and caregivers covered under the Save Lives Act (SLA). We are currently providing an additional dose to those moderately to severely immunocompromised as defined by the CDC. Those guidelines are found here: COVID-19 Vaccines for Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised People | CDC

The additional dose is available at our COVID-19 Vaccination Center and CBOCs during posted vaccination hours (please see graphics below).

If you believe you qualify for a third dose but have questions, please reach out to your VA provider. Our staff will provide more information about how to get the third dose at a time and place that’s convenient for you.

Why should I receive an additional dose if I am immunocompromised?
Some immunocompromised people don’t always build a sufficient level of immunity after vaccination and may benefit from an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine to ensure adequate protection against the virus.

Should I get the same mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as before?
Yes. The CDC recommends that people who received either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine use the same vaccine for their third dose. Please note: There is not enough data on whether or not those immunocompromised patients who received the J&J/Janssen vaccine should get an additional shot so this is not yet recommended. More information is expected in the coming weeks.

Local VA Leaders Encourage Vaccination



 

Message From the Atlanta VA Health Care System Director

On February 13, we successfully vaccinated more than 2,800 Veterans in the metro Atlanta area, and extended our normal vaccination clinic hours to 10 p.m., to accommodate as many Veterans as possible. 

We acknowledge receiving an overwhelming response to our COVID-19 vaccination drive-thru clinic which led to unexpected traffic delays for many with appointments. We sincerely apologize and are working to rescheduled missed appointments as soon as possible.

We continue to assess our vaccination efforts and will make logistical improvements moving forward. To date, the Atlanta VA has already administered more than 7,800 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Our goal is to vaccinate every eligible and enrolled Veteran who wants a vaccine, in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Ann Brown

Director, Atlanta VA Health Care System
