Health department now offering Moderna updated booster to 18 and older

Pedatric and youth initial dose Moderna clinics will continue by appointment

Upper Sandusky - Wyandot County Public Health is now offering the updated Moderna COVID-19 booster this during the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-In Wednesday Clinics at Wyandot County Public Health for those 18 and older. No appointment is necessary for those 18 and older attending Wednesday clinics.

While there are two updated mRNA boosters now available from Pfizer and Moderna, Wyandot County Public Health currently carries only the Moderna updated booster, approved for those 18 and older. The Pfizer updated booster is approved for all individuals aged 12 and older but is not offered at Wyandot County Public Health. Those 17 and under who are ready for an updated booster dose must receive the Pfizer updated booster, which is available locally from other healthcare partners.

Those 12 or older are now eligible for the updated booster if they:

  • Completed a primary series of Moderna, Pfizer, or Novavax, or the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
  • Are two months out from the most recent dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. This is regardless of if the most recent dose was the second dose of a primary series or a booster dose. All individuals 12 and older are eligible for an updated booster vaccine regardless of the number of booster doses previously received.

The Moderna updated booster is approved only for those 18 and older and, as such, will not be offered during Wyandot County Public Health’s pediatric and adolescent COVID clinics on Mondays and Fridays.
