Where Can You Get Your Covid-19 Booster Shot?

But where in the tri-state can they actually get them at?

Health leaders tell 44News that most hospitals and health departments should be able to administer that third dose.

For now, only those who are immuno-compromised can receive their booster shot of Pfizer or Moderna.

And it must be at least 28 days after their second vaccine dose.

These include cancer patients, organ transplant recipients, people with immunodeficiencies or those taking medicines that suppress the immune system.

Over at Deaconess, they have been offering the booster shot at all of their clinics, but new starting this week, they are going to make that option available through primary care doctors too.

"Going out of the way to an urgent care and having to wait in line -- versus just going into their regular doctor's officer that they have been seeing that doctor for year's for years and getting a routine shot like they would with pneumonia shot," said Dr. Brian Spencer, pharmacy services line manager for Deaconess. "So, making it accessible is very important for the patients to do."

Since some people do not have great transportation to make it to a hospital or health department in the tri-state, some are making it more accessible, like the mobile vaccine clinic in Vanderburgh County.

They even offered free tickets to the Lupillo Rivera concert this Friday at the Old National Events Plaza to anyone who got a dose at the mobile vaccine clinic. The concert actually requires those who attend to be vaccinated

Health officials say they are waiting on guidance from the CDC to green light the booster shot being available to more of the public.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
