Vaccine boosters available for eligible West Virginians
“We’re in nursing homes and assisted living facilities giving out shots right now all across the state,” Governor Justice said.
“We’ve always been at the forefront of vaccination efforts since they first became available and we’ve been ready for weeks to start giving out these boosters.”
The authorization is specifically for individuals who have previously received two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
“We have plenty of doses, based on the management of our inventory,” Joint Interagency Task Force Director Jim Hoyer said.
“There are booster shots being given in nursing homes now, as we are on this press conference.
“The boosters are also available at pharmacies, community clinics, hospitals, and some primary care providers who have been providing shots to their patients in their offices also have doses available. If you have an issue with finding a location, please contact the DHHR and they can help facilitate you getting to a location that has the Pfizer booster doses available.” ■
