On August 13, the CDC recommended that individuals with specific immunocompromising conditions – and who have received their course of two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines – receive a 3rd dose to complete their initial series. The list of conditions/treatments can be found here.
Recipients of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine are not eligible to receive additional doses. The FDA’s recent EUA amendment only applies to mRNA (Moderna and Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccines, as does CDC’s recommendation. For detailed information on clinical considerations for COVID-19 vaccination, visit the CDC’s website.
Martha’s Vineyard Hospital is communicating these recommendations directly to patients on Patient Gateway over the next several days, including information on how to access vaccine across Massachusetts. Patients will not need a doctor’s note to receive a 3rd dose. Additional information about vaccination options available at the MVH site is forthcoming.
If you have received the first dose of the vaccine at a different location and would like to make your second dose appointment at MVH, please call 508-684-4500.
If you are unable to make your appointment, please call 508-684-4500 to let us know. We are currently experiencing a high demand and can offer the appointment to someone else. Thank you for your cooperation.
The vaccine clinic will now operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and will be located at the MVH drive-thru testing tent by the flagpole.
If you need assistance, please call the MVH Call Center at 508-684-4500.
If you would like to search for vaccine appointments at other sites, please visit the state website.
Please be on time for your appointment. We have limited space at the hospital, so we ask you not to show up too early and not late. We appreciate your cooperation.
We will ask when you get to the hospital (to receive your vaccine) to follow certain safety protocols – which are mandatory.
We do so to protect not only you but our staff and others in the hospital.
Thank you for your help following these simple steps to keep everyone safe.
