Scheduling Booster Doses
The new Pfizer bivalent booster recommendation applies to those people ages 12 years and older AND who are two months out from the completion of their primary series or their most recent booster.
BCH employees are asked to schedule their booster dose in advance. We will accept walk-ins.
· Employees may schedule by emailing COVIDVACCINERESCHEDULE@childrens.harvard.edu with the following information: name, CH ID#, date of last vaccine dose, and requested appointment date and time.
· Employees may schedule by calling our PLP scheduling line at 617-919-7102.
Please note that receiving the single bivalent mRNA booster replaces all prior booster recommendations for this age group.
*Boston Children’s will offer the Moderna Bivalent COVID-19 booster when available.
