City of Racine – The City of Racine Public Health Department and the AMI Clinic at Regency Mall will begin providing COVID-19 boosters this week and Central Racine County Health Department will begin offering them next week. Last week, the FDA approved the use of boosters in certain instances and the CDC provided guidance as to who is eligible.

Boosters will be available to the community per the following CDC guidance:

  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID- 19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks,
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

The AMI Clinic at Regency Mall is open Tuesday’s from 11am to 7pm and Thursday’s from 11am to 5pm. No appointments are necessary. The Public Health clinic at City Hall is open Thursdays from 10am to 2pm.
