Vaccination Information From the Board of Health:
The Latest on the COVID Booster - 

The State is reviewing the actions by Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) last Friday recommending a third dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine for some individuals with compromised immune systems including individuals who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

We are urging Townsend residents who have questions about whether a third dose of vaccine is recommended for them to contact their medical provider to discuss these recommendations.
