WVU Medicine to offer COVID booster shot clinic Oct. 15

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – WVU Medicine will offer booster vaccines to those who were vaccinated at least six months ago with the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Friday, Oct. 15 at its vaccine clinic in the former Sears location at the Morgantown Mall.

The vaccines will be provided by appointment only to the following patients:

  • Those who are 65 years of age and older;
  • Those who are 18 years old or older who are immunosuppressed and/or have other underlying conditions that put them at high risk of contracting COVID-19; and
  • Those who are 18 years old or older who are in frequent contact with others exposed to COVID-19.

Vaccines will be given by appointment only to those who meet the above criteria. No walk-in appointments will be accepted. Appointment availability is based entirely on vaccine supply; distribution is currently controlled by the state and federal governments.

Appointments can be scheduled by using MyWVUChart, by calling 855-WVU-CARE, or by visiting this website.

Those who currently have COVID-19 are not eligible for the vaccine. Anyone who believes they may have COVID and have symptoms consistent with the disease should contact their primary care provider and obtain a test. WVU Medicine COVID-19 testing locations and hours can be found online here.

Those who received an initial series of the Moderna or the Jannsen/Johnson & Johnson vaccines are also ineligible.
