Mayo Clinic will offer COVID-19 vaccine boosters under new CDC recommendations starting Tuesday
ROCHESTER, Minn. (WEAU) - Moderately or severely immunocompromised people will be able to receive booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine sooner at Mayo Clinic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued recommendations to shorten the time between the third and fourth booster doses of mRNA-based vaccines to three months, down from the previous recommendation of five months, on Friday, Feb. 11.
The new guidance also clarifies the timeline for those who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to receive booster doses. Those people should receive their additional doses 28 days after receiving their first Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and a third dose is then recommended at least two months following the additional dose. The CDC also said that there is no need to delay vaccination for 90 days if a person received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma.
