Now Accepting New Patients for Telemedicine
On Thursday, October 21st, 2021, CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) issued a recommendation for Moderna and Janssen booster doses for certain groups of individuals. The recommendation was later signed off by CDC Director Dr. Walensky. This is in addition to the CDC’s earlier recommendation for the Pfizer booster dose.
The CDC issued the following guidance for booster doses to individuals who received their Moderna or Pfizer primary series at least six months ago:
- 65 years and older
- Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
- Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
For individuals who received a Janssen vaccine as their primary dose at least two months ago, the CDC guidance recommends a booster dose to all individuals who are 18 or older.
According to the CDC, booster is now recommended for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Individuals have ability to decide which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some individuals may prefer to receive booster of the same vaccine type they received as primary series while others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC is now allowing such mix and match of vaccines for booster shoots.

Family Medicine is a modern concept of medicine which stresses understanding of each patient and comprehensive medical care for the entire family, regardless of age or sex. Unlike previous concepts of general practice, the family physician is not only trained to deal with acute illness, but is uniquely qualified to provide health maintenance to prevent disease.
Adam I. Wasserman, M.D., Douglas E. Eyer, M.D., and William J. Adair, M.D. are board certified family physicians.
