3rd Dose COVID Vaccines for Immune-compromised

(Honesdale, August 25, 2021)…Following CDC recommendations, Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) announced it will offer a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to immune-compromised individuals starting this Friday, August 27th.

The third doses will be administered by appointment at all nine primary care centers during specific hours. Appointments can be made by calling the office of your choice or calling the WMCHC COVID hotline, 570.253.8197.

Only the Moderna vaccine will be available at eight of the centers (first and second doses are available also, but third is only for immune-compromised individuals). Highland Family Physicians will offer both Moderna and Pfizer third doses on Fridays.  It is recommended that individuals get the same type of vaccine for their third dose as their two previous doses.
