August 16th, 2021 COVID-19 Update


 https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/covid-19-vaccines-us.html


 We are reviewing the actions by ACIP yesterday 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 Massachusetts residents who have questions about whether a third dose of vaccine is recommended for them to contact their medical provider to discuss these recommendations.
