Kendall County Department of Health Now Offers COVID-19 Vaccine Booster for Immunocompromised People | Wspynews
The Kendall County Department of Health is now offering COVID-19 vaccine boosters for people who are immunocompromised. The new guidelines come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Community health director Terri Olson said the recall is intended to help people with weakened immune systems fight off COVID-19 infection.
Some people eligible for the recall included those who have received active cancer treatment or those who have had an organ transplant and are taking drugs to suppress the immune system. Registration for the recall is done on the Department of Health website.
Olson predicts that the CDC will expand the number of people recommended for a booster injection in the coming months.
The Kendall County Department of Health continues to provide vaccines to anyone who wants them. Olson noted that people should check what vaccine is offered on that day, as Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are only available for those eighteen and over. Children as young as twelve are eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
