3rd Dose Boosters

CDC is strengthening its recommendation on COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. Everyone ages 12 and older can get a booster shot either when they are 5 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series or 2 months after their initial Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

The emergence of the Omicron variant further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and other prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19. While there is much to learn about the Omicron variant, we do know that COVID-19 vaccines are our best tool to avoid serious illness & hospitalization.

Fellow Michigan Residents,

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Is Committed to Vaccinating As many Michigan Residents as Possible

Expanded access to the COVID-19 vaccine is an exciting time for patients of Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital. Since the pandemic began, the availability of a vaccine is the biggest game-changer towards stopping the spread of COVID-19. At this time, individuals aged 5 or older are now eligible to receive the vaccine.

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital continues to offer COVID-19 vaccines to the public on a weekly basis.

Anyone receiving the vaccine will be monitored for 15 minutes to ensure they don’t experience any rare, serious reaction. There may be other minor side effects that follow the vaccination, which can include pain or soreness in the arm where you get the shot, fever, chills, tiredness or headache, which can last up to a day. Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital has both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine available which require two doses, before a patient is considered fully vaccinated.

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital is offering booster vaccines for Pfizer (Ages 12+) and Moderna (18+) as well as third doses for immunocompromised individuals.

For those still evaluating your decision to receive the vaccine, we want to make sure you have a clear understanding of the vaccine and how it works. Each vaccine uses messenger RNA (mRNA), which is a copy of the virus’s code that tells the body’s immune system how to quickly recognize and fight the virus. No live COVID-19 virus exists in the vaccine and you cannot catch COVID-19 from the vaccine.

The speed at which each vaccine was developed was achieved by eliminating bureaucratic red tape within the existing vaccine development process and because funding already existed. No corners were cut that would jeopardize the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. It was properly reviewed and vetted by immunization experts from the FDA and CDC, and across the globe, scientists and medical experts consistently support the safety of the vaccine.

The more people we can vaccinate, the sooner we can get back to normal. Regardless of your vaccination status, we must not let our guard down and will need to continue to wear our masks, wash hands regularly and practice social distancing.

On behalf of Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital, we thank you for trusting us with your care. Please call our Rural Health Clinic COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline: 906-341-3775.
