Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) COVID-19 vaccination clinics began offering the newly-authorized and updated COVID-19 booster vaccines Sept. 12. Scheduling is now open.
The newest Pfizer-BioNTech booster vaccine is authorized for those 12 and older and the new Moderna booster for those 18 and older for use as a single booster dose at least two months following primary or booster vaccination with the original vaccine formulation. Existing Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines will continue to be used for the initial two-shot vaccination series of those vaccines, but not as boosters, federal officials said.
Scheduling initial COVID-19 shots or boosters is required at LVHN COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Hazleton, Pottsville, East Stroudsburg, Whitehall and Lower Nazareth Township.
Scheduling can be completed through MyLVHN, the patient portal, at MyLVHN.org, with the MyLVHN app, or by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD) 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
