Columbia Fire & Rescue is hosting a COVID-19 Drive Through Vaccine event on Thursday, October 14th.

EVENT DETAILS:

WHEN: Thursday, October 14th, 10am – 4pm

WHERE: Fire Station No. 1, 1000 S Garden

DETAILS: First and second doses of Pfizer & Moderna vaccines will be available, as well as, third doses of Pfizer for those who qualify.

Booster doses are designed to further enhance the immunity of an individual who has been fully vaccinated. According to CDC recommendations, the following are eligible for a booster if they completed the initial Pfizer two-dose series at least six months ago:

– People age 65 and older and/or residents in long-term care settings
– People ages 50-64 with underlying medical conditions
– People ages 18-49 with underlying medical conditions may receive a Pfizer booster, based on their individual benefits and risks, and are encouraged to consult their medical provider.
– People ages 18-64 who are at increased risk for COVID exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a Pfizer booster, based on their individual benefits and risks, and are encouraged to consult their medical provider.

Those vaccinated with Moderna or Johnson & Johnson are not currently eligible for a booster; however, Moderna has limited approval for third dose administration for those who are immune-compromised.
