Lee Health has announced that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available for booster doses for people age 16 and older who received their second dose of the vaccine at least six months ago.

Booster doses help provide extra protection against the coronavirus and have been shown to be effective against the new omicron variant. Appointments for booster doses can be made on the Lee Health website. There is no cost for the vaccine, and the booster dose doesn’t have to be the same vaccine brand as your initial vaccination.

Those age 16 and 17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer booster.
