Eastern Oklahoma VA expands offering of COVID-19 booster shots

PRESS RELEASE

October 26, 2021

Muskogee , OK — The Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System (EOVAHCS) is now offering Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine booster shots to enrolled Veterans, as well as their spouses and caregivers.

This decision follows the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendation for a booster dose of the Moderna or J&J vaccine:

For those who completed a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at least 6 months after their second dose:

For those who had a J&J COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated at least 2 months ago.

Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
