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 January 10, 2022, individuals age 5 and older are eligible for Pfizer and individuals 18 and older are eligible for Moderna and J&J.

Who needs an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Additional doses are for moderately to severely immunocompromised patients because they need an extra dose to reach >90% efficacy.

The CDC and the FDA recommend an additional dose when eligible for those who are immunocompromised and ages 5 and older. This includes those 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 two years, or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Are diagnosed with moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
  • Are diagnosed with HIV and have a high viral load or low CD4 count, or are not currently taking medication to treat HIV.
  • Are taking drugs like high-dose steroids or other medications that may cause severe suppression of the immune system.

Individuals ages 5-17 are eligible to receive a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine. The CDC recommends that individuals age 18 or older receive either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for their additional third dose 28 days after receiving the second dose.

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

When should I receive a booster dose?
Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are approved for booster doses. Pfizer and Moderna are preferred in most situations.
Please review the following information to determine when you should receive your COVID-19 booster.
  • If you received the Pfizer vaccine for your primary dose:
    • Who should get a booster? Everyone 12 years and older
    • When? At least 5 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series
    • Which vaccine? Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are preferred in most situations. Teens 12–17 years old may only get a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster.
  • If you received the Moderna vaccine for your primary dose:
    • Who should get a booster? Adults 18 years and older
    • When? At least 5 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series
    • Which vaccine? Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are preferred in most situations.
  • If you received the J&J vaccine for your primary dose:
    • Who should get a booster? Adults 18 years and older
    • When? At least 2 months after receiving your J&J vaccination
    • Which vaccine? Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are preferred in most situations.
As a reminder: An additional dose is different from a booster dose. Additional doses are for immunocompromised populations.

Is there any other criteria?

Everyone needs to meet the following guidelines to be COVID-19 vaccinated:

  • Individuals must be 5 years of age or older.
  • If you have had a past severe allergic reaction to a medication, injectable medication or any other vaccine, please contact your primary care physician to obtain a written clearance that you are able receive the vaccine. You will need to submit this before we can administer the vaccine to you.
  • People with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for discontinuing isolation. Those without symptoms should also wait until they meet the criteria before getting vaccinated. This guidance also applies to people who get COVID-19 before getting their second dose of vaccine.
What is the cost?

There is no cost to individuals or the organization for the Covid-19 vaccine.  The federal government has purchased the vaccine from all the manufacturers at no cost to you.
