In August 2021, the United States Department of Health and Human Services announced a plan to begin offering COVID-19 booster shots in the fall of 2021 for those who received the Pfizer (also called Comirnaty) or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. While it is anticipated that booster doses will begin the week of September 20, 2021, a firm date has not been established. When the date is determined, those who are eight (8) months past the date of their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine would become eligible for the COVID-19 booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna.

Delaware County Public Health will share the COVID-19 booster start date and details as soon as it is available.
