Denver Health to Offer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Booster Shots

In addition to Pfizer booster shots, Denver Health plans to offer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J & J) booster shots starting Monday, October 25, 2021 to all staff and eligible patients. Staff and patients must have completed either the primary Moderna vaccine series at least six months ago, or the J & J single dose at least two months ago.

The FDA and CDC recommended Moderna COVID-19 booster shots for U.S. adults 65 and older as well as individuals with underlying conditions placing them at higher risk for severe COVID-19. The CDC is also allowing individuals 18 or older at higher risk for exposure to COVID-19, including health care workers, frontline workers and first responders, to get a booster dose if they choose.

The CDC is recommending that individuals – regardless of age or underlying condition – who received a one-dose vaccination of Johnson & Johnson receive a second dose as early as two months from the date of their first shot.

While vaccination remains the most important measure we can take to prevent COVID-19 and its complications, adhering to additional prevention measures such as universal indoor masking is essential to protecting ourselves, families, patients and staff.
