Appointments are highly encouraged. Appointments for boosters are released approximately one month at a time (dependent upon vaccine availability). If the date you're eligible to receive your booster on falls outside that range, you will not be able to make an appointment or receive a booster and should check back later.
You must bring a copy of your COVID-19 vaccine card (hard copy (preferred) or a picture of your card on your phone). You will not be able to receive your booster without your COVID-19 vaccine card. If you lost your card, please check the FAQs to find out how to obtain a replacement card.
The CDC is now recommending:
- Everyone age 5 years and older receive a single booster dose of the newly recommended bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine.
- This booster should be given at least 2 months after completion of a monovalent primary series or any prior monovalent booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
- At this time, there is no change to the monovalent vaccine schedules for children age 6 months through 11 years.
- You must first complete at least a primary series with the original monovalent vaccine before receiving a single bivalent booster at least 2 months later.
- You may receive either brand of bivalent vaccine that is age-appropriate; there is no preference and no need to match the brand of the primary series.
- The bivalent booster recommendation replaces previous booster recommendations for people age 5 years and older.
- This recommendation is for a one-time booster. ACIP does not anticipate recommendations for frequent (e.g., every few months) booster doses of bivalent vaccine.
- COVID-19 vaccines may be co-administered with all other routinely recommended vaccines, including influenza vaccine.
Those who do not meet the criteria stated above will be unable to receive their booster dose and will be asked to reschedule their appointment.
Montgomery County’s Department of Public Safety is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people with disabilities who are eligible through its Mobile Integrated Health Unit. Anyone who wants to set up a vaccination appointment for an individual that is homebound, please call (610) 631-3079 and leave a voicemail for a callback.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has started a national hotline to help people with disabilities gain access to information and resources for COVID-19 vaccinations. The Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) service can connect callers with information regarding how to access the vaccine, including local clinics. Additionally, it can also connect them to valuable local and national disability resources.
