  • People 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster
  • People age 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster
  • People age 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster
  • People age 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting (e.g., frontline medical workers, teachers, and first responders) may receive a booster

People with underlying conditions are encouraged to talk to their medical provider if the booster shot is right for them.

If you still need the first and/or the second doses of the Moderna, Pfizer/Comirnaty, and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccines are available on a walk-in basis on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. However, appointments will be needed on other weekdays at the Ozarks Healthcare Pharmacy located at #18 Parkway Center in West Plains.
