MELBOURNE, FL – In light of recent news that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have expanded eligibility for Covid-19 booster shots, OMNI Healthcare announces that its offices and walk-in vaccination clinic have sufficient supply to meet the expected demand. The new recommendations now allow boosters of the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines for anyone 18 or older, and who initially received their second Pfizer or Moderna shot at least six months ago. Boosters are also recommended for people who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.
OMNI Healthcare is now administering the vaccine at all of its offices throughout Brevard by appointment and at its Melbourne vaccination clinic on a walk-in basis. The physicians group is offering all three Covid-19 vaccines including Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Children as young as five years old are eligible and are receiving a smaller, pediatric dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the first and only Covid-19 vaccine to receive full approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Pfizer vaccine is now marketed as Cominarty, for the prevention of Covid-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for children 5 through 15 years of age.
In recent weeks, the FDA approved anyone eligible for their Covid-19 booster to mix and match their Covid-19 vaccine, meaning that anyone eligible for an extra dose can get a brand different from the one they received initially.
OMNI Vaccination Walk-In Clinic
The clinic is located on the 3rd floor in Suite 303 of 1344 South Apollo Blvd in Melbourne and is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are not required but can be made by calling (321) 802-5515, or by emailing the request and including a name and phone number to COVID@OMNIhealthcare.com.
Anyone interested in receiving the vaccine should bring a state-issued ID and their insurance card. Without insurance, a social security number is required. A vaccination record card is also required to receive the booster shot. Boosters and second shots can be administered at OMNI even if a person’s initial shot(s) was received elsewhere.
