Now scheduling Moderna COVID-19 boosters, walk-in option available
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 28, caregivers at main campus can receive a Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 booster at the tent located between E. 89th Street and Bunts Auditorium. The tent is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. No appointment is necessary, walk-ins are welcome and both Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine products are available.
- Prior to visiting the tent to receive your booster, be sure to complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Survey in ReadySet.
- If your information is not accurate in ReadySet, you can email a photo of your CDC vaccination card to [email protected].
Bring your proof of vaccination
- Caregivers who wish to receive the Pfizer or Moderna booster must show proof of their previous two-dose COVID-19 vaccinations to ensure that six months have lapsed between their second dose and booster.
- Appropriate COVID-19 vaccination documentation includes the CDC issued vaccination card with date and product of first and second dose or MyChart documentation printed or displayed through the mobile app (read instructions on how to access here).
- Please note: if appropriate documentation of previous COVID-19 vaccination is not provided, the booster dose cannot be administered.
Is a booster dose different than a third dose for people with compromised immune systems?
Yes. For people with compromised immune systems, the third dose must be given at least 28 days after a patient’s second dose. Whereas a booster dose is given at least six months following the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
Third dose Moderna for caregivers who are immunosuppressed
Occupational Health will not ask a caregiver if they are immunosuppressed or immunocompromised. For caregivers who are immunocompromised and wish to receive a third dose of Moderna to complete their initial series at the main campus tent, please alert the individual administering your vaccine as the dose is different. Moderna immunocompromised third dose is 100 mcg whereas Moderna booster dose is 50 mcg.
Guidance for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine
A booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been approved for individuals 18 years of age and older at least two months after their initial one-dose vaccine. At this time, we will not be offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at Cleveland Clinic locations in Ohio. Individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine may choose to receive their booster at Cleveland Clinic with a Pfizer or Moderna dose.
Can I receive a different booster from the original vaccine product I received?
The FDA and CDC have authorized individuals to receive a booster dose that is a different brand than their initial vaccines. For example, someone who received an initial dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, can receive a Pfizer or Moderna booster dose.
