COVID-19 Vaccinations

Aspirus Health has temporarily suspended COVID-19 booster appointments due to the updated guidance given by the FDA on August 31. Booster appointments will resume when the new bivalent booster shots become available in late September or early October. Vaccinations remain available through Aspirus Health for initial COVID-19 vaccine series and boosters for kids ages 6-11.

Vaccine and Booster Eligibility

All community members age 6 months+ are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine per WI and MI DHS guidance. The COVID-19 Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both authorized for anyone age 6 months or older.

Refer to this COVID-19 vaccine algorithm from the CDC that details vaccine eligibility, timing and more.

COVID-19 Vaccine Third Dose vs. Booster Dose

Here is a rundown from the CDC that outlines the COVID-19 booster recommendations. Here is a summary of third-dose recommendations.

Third Dose

The CDC recommends individuals who are immunocompromised receive a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines at least 28 days after completing their second dose. This includes people who have:

  • Recently received or are currently receiving cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood.
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection.
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response.

Booster Dose

A booster dose is different than a third dose of the vaccine.There are also monovalent and bivalent booster doses available. Please refer to the CDC's booster recommendations for the latest guidance on booster doses and timing.  

Mixing-and-matching: Individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
