The third dose of COVID-19 vaccine is now available at the Department of Health – Sarasota (DOH) 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, for those individuals who are moderately to severely immunocompromised. No appointment is needed.
The third shot can be administered 28 days after an individual has received both doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines only. While your vaccination card is not required, DOH-Sarasota must be able to validate the first two doses you previously received.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend additional doses for any other individuals at this time. However, those who are immunocompromised are strongly encouraged to consult their physicians prior to receiving the additional dose.
