Important Update on COVID-19 Boosters

Currently VUMC is only administering third dose COVID-19 shots to immunocompromised patients as approved by the FDA. Booster shots for the Pfizer vaccine are still waiting approval from the FDA, and there are no plans by VUMC to begin administration of boosters on Sept. 20 until approval occurs.

Updates will be provided and announced as more information becomes available.

Edited on Sept. 24, 2021 to add: Boosters have been authorized for those age 65+ and other certain groups. Watch for guidance from VUMC early next week about offering boosters to employees and patients.
