Gundersen offers COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for high-risk individuals

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Gundersen Health System is offering third doses of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for immunocompromised people age 12 and older.

Those eligible can self-identify as being immunocompromised and must meet one of these requirements for the third dose:

  • Receiving cancer treatment for tumors or blood cancer
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

Eligible people will receive a third dose from the same manufacturer as their initial doses. Gundersen will not offer additional doses of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

How to get a third dose if you're eligible
Anyone age 12 and older, patients or non-patients, can get the free, safe third dose of COVID-19 at Gundersen.

Adult Gundersen patients can walk-in, schedule their appointment through MyChart, or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829. Adult non-patients can walk-in or call the scheduling line at (608) 775-6829, option 2, for a vaccine appointment.

Patients under age 18 need parent or guardian consent in person or by calling the Gundersen scheduling line at (608) 775-6829.

Important note: The CDC recommends a third dose Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for all eligible Americans starting this fall, pending further review by the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Gundersen is forming a plan, based on this preliminary guidance, and will share more information when final recommendations are available.
