DANVILLE, Pa. – Following recent guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Geisinger is offering booster doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for 16 – and 17-year-olds. 

Adults and 16- to 17-year-olds who are not immunocompromised can receive a Pfizer booster dose as soon as six months after receiving their second dose. The booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the same dosage (0.3 milliliters) as a single dose.

As our inpatient numbers increase, we encourage the community to get their booster shots to further protect themselves from COVID-19.

If you’re unsure if you qualify for a booster or have any specific questions, contact your doctor.

You can make an appointment for a first, second, third or booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Geisinger through MyGeisinger or by calling 570-284-3657. Appointments are available at the vaccine centers at the Geisinger Health Plan Building near Danville, Geisinger CenterPoint in Jenkins Township, Geisinger Jersey Shore Hospital and Geisinger Lewistown Hospital. Appointments are also available at Geisinger Philipsburg and Geisinger Pharmacy locations in Dallas, Danville, Lewistown, Lock Haven, Mount Pocono, Pottsville, State College and Scranton. 

Remember to bring your COVID-19 vaccine card or proof of having received the vaccine to your appointment if you’re getting a third or booster dose. More information about the COVID-19 vaccine is available at Geisinger.org/COVIDVax.

As a reminder, no visitors are permitted for outpatient appointments, unless medically necessary, and masks must be worn by everyone in all Geisinger buildings and facilities.
