Each of the available COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson) may be paired with another as a booster in eligible people following completion of the primary

vaccination with a different available COVID-19 vaccine.  

“With COVID-19 infections prevalent in our community, expanding access to booster doses will protect individuals who are at greatest risk for severe illness and hospitalization due to COVID-19,” said Heather Strandell, Director of Primary Care Operations at Altru. “Please consider getting vaccinated, and a booster dose, as a safeguard for your health.”  

COVID-19 Booster Doses are available at any primary care clinics, and upon request at

upcoming flu shot clinics. Please bring proof of your completed COVID vaccine series to your appointment.
