Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Southeast Health is currently putting plans in place to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 booster dose to an expanded population beyond those who are immunocompromised, according to a press release.

Southeast Health will offer the booster in compliance with The U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended emergency use authorization, which has been endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • people 65 years of age and older
  • people 18-64 years old at high risk of severe COVID-19
  • people, such as healthcare workers, 18-64 years old, whose frequent institutional or occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19 including severe COVID-19.

The booster will be administered by appointment only in the COVID-19 vaccine clinic on the second floor of the Doctors Building.

Southeast Health asks for people to not walk in and request the booster shot.

They will release information on how to schedule an appointment in the coming days.
