September 24, 2021: Booster doses for PFIZER vaccine can now be scheduled at both Public Health offices. The boosters should be given at least 6 months past the date of the second Pfizer vaccine received.
IF YOU ARE SEEKING AN ADDITIONAL DOSE FOR THE MODERNA VACCINE YOU MUST FIT INTO THE SEVERELY IMMUNOCOMPROMISED CONDITIONS OUTLINED BY THE CDC. The 6 month booster dose ONLY applies to the Pfizer vaccine right now.
Please contact Public Health in Afton (885-9598) or Kemmerer (877-3780) if you have questions on if you qualify for a booster dose and to schedule appointments for them. We cannot take walk ins at this time for any of our services. You must have an appointment.
September 17, 2021: Public Health is still unable to provide booster doses to anyone who is NOT moderately to severely immunocompromised. We know the news keeps talking about scheduling the booster in September but we have NOT yet received permission from the ACIP/CDC/Wyoming Department of Health to begin administering those doses. Please visit the CDC - linked below - to determine if you fit the conditions that qualify you for an additional dose - there is a list of the immunocompromising conditions that we refer to prior to scheduling an appointment for an additional dose. While we do not required physician documentation to support the condition you are reporting, there is an attestation on the consent form that you sign stating you have a moderate to severe immunocompromising condition.
August 23, 2021: The FDA has approved Pfizer vaccine. Please read the news release here.
August 13, 2021: A third dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for immunocompromised people has been approved. Public Health is now able to begin scheduling these appointments. Additional doses are recommended to be at least 28 days (four weeks) after the second dose of an mRNA vaccine. If you would like an additional dose, fit the immunocompromised conditions defined here, and are 28 days past your second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you can call our offices to make an appointment. Please read the link from the CDC that gives all the information about who should receive an additional dose.

If you are 12 years or older and interested in COVID-19 vaccination, please contact our offices to schedule an appointment: 307-885-9598 (Afton) or 307-877-3780 (Kemmerer).
