Moderately or severely immunocompromised community members can now schedule a third dose COVID-19 vaccine appointment through Vidant Health by calling 252-847-8000 or by visiting VidantHealth.com/Vaccinate

The health system said a third dose may prevent serious and possibly life-threatening COVID-19 in immunocompromised people who may not have responded to their initial vaccine series.

Vidant Health is closely following Centers for Disease Control guidance to provide third doses to eligible community members. 

Appointments can be scheduled at Vidant Health clinics and oncology practices throughout the region for immunocompromised, eligible community members who meet the following criteria:

Have had an organ or stem cell transplant

Are receiving chemotherapy, other treatment for cancer or tumors, taking biologic agents, taking high doses of prednisone, or taking similar drugs. Many of these drugs are used for treatment of cancer, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, or psoriasis.

Have a disease that weakens your immune system         

Your doctor told you that you’re immunosuppressed

The third dose is recommended for immunocompromised individuals at least 28 days after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and is not recommended for those who received Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

Vidant Health is following CDC guidance and is not currently offering additional doses or booster shots for any other population at this time.
