Vermont: Appointments for Pfizer booster shots available for those 75 and older

Christian Fernsby |
Governor Phil Scott announced that Vermonters 75 years of age and older are now eligible to schedule and receive COVID-19 vaccine boosters.

Beginning on Wednesday, September 29, that eligibility expands to any Vermonters 70 years of age and older, and then to people aged 65 and older on Friday, October 1.

Additionally, starting on Friday, those aged 18 to 64 with underlying medical conditions or who work in certain occupational settings will become eligible for boosters.

The State is awaiting guidance from the CDC on what underlying medical conditions and/or occupational settings make individuals eligible for booster shots. That guidance is expected from the CDC later this week.

When you are eligible, you can get your third dose anywhere that offers the Pfizer vaccine, a Health Department clinic, pharmacy, or health care provider.
