Press Release October 22, 2021

Long Beach Island Health Department Offers Pfizer, Moderna and J & J Covid-19 Immunization Boosters
Specifically, for Moderna Boosters the Department is expanding clinics at St. Francis Parish Hall 4700 Long Beach Boulevard, Brant Beach.
When: November 4th & 9th, 9-3, by appointment only
Please register for an appointment at www.lbihealth.com, hover over the covid-19 tab.
According to the CDC, for individuals who received a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at six months or more after their initial series:

  • 65 years and older
  • Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
  • Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
  • Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings

The authorization also recommends that everyone ages 18 and older who received a first Johnson & Johnson dose receive a booster dose at least two months after completing the single-dose primary regimen.
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some individuals may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
With the holidays approaching and the Delta variant continuing to impact the state, we encourage everyone who is eligible to get their booster shots as they consider travel and gatherings for the holiday season.
The Department continues its efforts to vaccinate as many people as possible, especially 12 to 17-year-olds. Those who have yet to be vaccinated are strongly encouraged to get their first shot today to protect not only themselves, but their family and community.
