Need a boost?
Dallas ISD and community partners are offering booster shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to those who qualify Saturday, Oct. 2.
The COVID-19 Pop Up Clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Townview Magnet Center, 1201 E. 8th St.
It’s important to note that the booster applies only to the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine and only to people 18 and older who meet the eligibility requirements. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend booster doses for recipients of the Moderna or J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines at this time. Mixing and matching vaccine brands is not currently authorized by the Food and Drug Administration or recommended by the CDC

Here is the list who should get the booster dose at least six months after receiving the second Pfizer shot:
- Individuals 65 years of age and older
- Residents of long-term care settings
- Individuals 50-64 with underlying medical conditions
- Individuals 18-49 with underlying medical conditions and those 18-64 who live or work somewhere that puts them at high risk of getting COVID if the personal benefits outweigh the personal risks
