Getting your COVID-19 Vaccine…

Every person age 5 years and older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Newport Health Center administers the following vaccine:

  • Comirnaty / Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
  • Pediatric Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
  • Spikevax / Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

Pediatric Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine: Newport Health Center is administering Pediatric Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old. These vaccines are provided during regular primary care provider visits and during nurse-only visits. Beginning in January 2022, all COVID-19 vaccines will be offered via nurse-only appointments on Monday mornings and all-day on Fridays. For more information regarding the Pediatric Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, please read the Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers (5 – 11 years old).

  • Moderately to severely immunocompromised children ages 5-11 may now receive an additional primary dose of Pfizer vaccine to ensure optimal protection. (Note: the FDA has not yet approved boosters for this age group, so the additional dose is still considered primary)

Booster Doses (12 years and older):  Booster doses are now available for all three COVID-19 vaccine types for individuals 12 years and older! Newport Health Center has all three vaccine products available for established patients.

  • At least five (5) months after completing the primary Pfizer vaccine series, individuals age 12 and older are eligible for a booster dose.
    • NOTE: 12 to 17 year-old individuals may only receive the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
  • At least five (5) months after completing the primary Moderna vaccine series, individuals age 18 years and older are eligible for a booster dose.
  • At least two months after receiving the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, adults age 18 years and older are eligible for a booster dose.

As of March 30, 2022, the Washington State Department of Health updated booster dose recommendations are as follows:

  • Everyone 12 and older should receive a booster dose five months after completing their two-dose vaccine series of Pfizer or Moderna, or two months after receiving the single-shot Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine.
  • Everyone 50 and older can receive a second booster dose four months after receiving their first booster dose.
  • Individuals 12 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised can receive a second booster dose four months after receiving their first booster dose.
