COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Information

Fargo Cass Public Health (FCPH) is an enrolled provider for COVID-19 vaccine and follows the North Dakota Department of Health recommendations and guidance related to distribution of the vaccine booster.

Based on guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, eligible individuals are now recommended to receive a single booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine six months following the completion of their Pfizer primary series. Those individuals who previously received the Johnson & Johnson or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are not currently eligible for a booster dose.

Groups eligible for vaccine have been identified by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the North Dakota Department of Health.

Who is eligible?
On Thursday, September 23, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved a single booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine, to be administered at least six months after completion of the primary series for the CDC's current recommendations:

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot,
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster based on their individual benefits and risks.

The authorization applies only to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
