Ledge Light Health District (LLHD) issued the following statement today:
“Ledge Light Health District will host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, from 3 to 6:00 PM at the Groton Municipal Building (295 Meridian Street). We will offer the Moderna vaccine for 1st, 2nd and booster doses at no cost to adults 18 years and older.
The current booster recommendations are:
For individuals who received an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) the following groups are eligible for a booster shot:
- Severely immunocompromised at 1 month or more after their initial series.
- Everyone 18+ at 6 months or more after their initial series.
For individuals who received the J&J vaccine, booster shots are recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Mixing & Matching (heterologous series): Both the FDA and CDC support individuals to receive a booster dose that is a different vaccine type than they originally received for their primary series if they choose. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Please visit www.LLHD.org to make a vaccine appointment or call us at 860-448-4882 for assistance. All participants must wear a mask and practice social distancing. If you have any questions, please call us at 860-448-4882.”
