If you're age 65 or older, or if you're a First Responder or Medical Worker who comes in contact with many people daily... Or maybe you're one with underlying health conditions and are immunocompromised--Covid-19 Booster shots are here in the Basin after the FDA signed-off and approved them last night. There is no official information that I can find that talks specifically about which vaccine you originally got, and whether or not you can safely mix and match-so if you originally got the Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccine, this isn't for you. That may change as more time passes and further studies are done to see what effects mixing and matching vaccines has-but for now stick with the original brand/dose you received.

Some patients who are immunocompromised already received a third shot at the time of initial vaccination-and that is NOT considered a booster. It is considered part of your initial dose in order to be able to create a strong enough immunity to the virus. So you would also be eligible for the booster.

If you were one who initially got the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine-there is now a booster shot that is available. Right now you can get it in Midland by registering online by clicking HERE, and in Odessa, you can get it at the UTPB Soccer Complex from 9 am-1 pm thru tomorrow (Fri) in the Parking Lot. For the Odessa location, there is no registration required.
