Wegmans offering Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot by appointment only


Mon, Sep 27th 2021 07:10 pm

Wegmans Pharmacy locations are now offering Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine booster doses to eligible individuals by appointment only. The following groups are eligible to receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series:

√ People 65 years and older;

√ Residents in long-term care settings;

√ People aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions;

√ People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions, 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, based on their individual benefits and risks

At this time, only individuals who received the Pfizer two-dose vaccine are eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech booster shot. Currently, there is not a recommendation for a Moderna or J&J/Janssen booster shot for the general population.

Appointments for a COVID-19 vaccine or booster shot must be reserved in advance. Customers can schedule an appointment by visiting Wegmans.com/pharmacy or calling 1-800-207-6099 between 2 and 4 p.m. weekdays, while appointments last. Customers must bring their COVID-19 vaccination record card or other proof of vaccination to their appointment if they did not receive their initial two-dose series at Wegmans. Proof of qualifying condition is not required; however, patients will be asked to self-attest to current CDC eligibility at time of vaccine appointment.

Additional information about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine or booster shot at Wegmans, along with answers to frequently asked questions, are available on Wegmans’ website.
