FHN Offering COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shots to All Adults

November 19, 2021 – After today's U.S. Food and Drug Administration decision to expand the availability of COVID-19 booster shots to all persons over 18, FHN has opened online self-scheduling for a number of December Moderna COVID-19 booster shot clinics.

“With the rising number of COVID-19 cases, we were glad to see the FDA's decision, and we encourage everyone who was fully vaccinated before July 2021 to get their booster shot,” said FHN President and CEO Mark Gridley, MBA, FACHE. “Whether you received the Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine, getting a booster shot now will help protect you and your loved ones from the most serious effects of COVID-19.”

Registration is required for these clinics, which will be held from 8 a.m. “ 3:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3; Monday, Dec. 6; Tuesday, Dec. 7; Friday, Dec. 10; Monday, Dec. 13; Tuesday, Dec. 14; and Friday, Dec. 17 at 1763 S. Dirck Drive in Freeport.

Appointments also are available for a number of November clinics: Monday, Nov. 29; and Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 1763 S. Dirck Drive in Freeport.

Appointments for these vaccination clinics are available at www.fhn.org/booster-registration_ModernaPfizer.asp. Recipients must bring their COVID-19 immunization card with them to their appointment and plan to stay for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccination (30 minutes for persons who have had immediate reactions to vaccinations such as flu shots, or regularly need to carry an EpiPen). There is no cost for a COVID-19 booster shot.
