National Jewish Health Provides Third Dose Boosters of COVID-19 Vaccine to Immunocompromised Individuals
DENVER, CO —
National Jewish Health is now providing third dose boosters of the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 to immunocompromised individuals, by appointment only. Following the CDC recent amendment to the EUA, third doses of the Pfizer vaccine are available to immunocompromised individuals because they are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and are more at risk of serious, prolonged illness.
National Jewish Health continues to administer first and second dose vaccinations on a walk-up basis.
People with appointments for the third dose vaccine or arriving for walk-up first and second doses, should arrive at the facility’s main patient entrance (near the corner of Colorado Blvd. and Colfax Avenue), where they will first be screened and then directed to the correct location for the vaccine clinic.
Third dose vaccinations require an appointment and can be booked at njhealth.org/vaccines. Additional appointments will be opened when available.National Jewish Health is the leading respiratory hospital in the nation.
