Information on the Pfizer COVID-19 Booster Vaccine

The health and safety of EVMS employees and students is our highest priority. The CDC recently endorsed the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. In accordance with the most recent guidance from the CDC, we encourage all eligible EVMS employees and students to schedule a booster dose if they have received both initial Pfizer vaccine doses and have been fully vaccinated for at least six months. The booster shot is available through the Virginia Department of Health and many local pharmacies.
