Organizations

If you would like Springfield Pharmacy to run a vaccine clinic at your organization, use the button to launch the form.

Springfield Pharmacy Services has been approved as a provider for the COVID-19 vaccine by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. As a service to our community we will be offering the vaccine to all-eligible persons.

Who is eligible to receive the vaccine?

As of April 13, 2021, age 12+ for Pfizer and 18+ for Moderna and J&J are eligible.

Who needs an additional third COVID-19 vaccine?

Third doses are for the immunocompromised patients because they need an extra dose to reach the >90% needed for full vaccination, and is available now. This population of patients need the third dose – 28 days after the second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna. 

Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

When are Booster Doses available?
After the ACIP meeting on 9/23/21, CDC recommends the following regarding Pfizer Booster doses:  
  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, 
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and 
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • Includes healthcare workers, teachers, residents of homeless shelters and prisons.
 
Booster shots for people who received Moderna or J&J for their primary series are not supported by data at this time and a booster should not be administered to these populations.
 
As a reminder: The additional dose, which can be Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, is for immunocompromised populations.
