    All three vaccines, Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson are available to our patients and staff by appointment only at the Downtown Drive-Up Lab

    UPDATED CDC guidelines state that COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are available for the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna  vaccine recipients who completed their initial series at least 6 months ago:

    For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 or older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

    For moderately to severely immunocompromised people, they may be eligible for a third dose of the vaccine, which is delivered sooner than the booster dose. The 
    CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer or Moderna.  See attachment for referrals for a third dose.

    Booster vaccines are available at the Downtown Drive-Up Lab, and eligible Springfield Clinic patients must have an appointment. No drive-ups available. If patients meet the criteria, they do not need a referral and can self-schedule their appointment. Severely immunocompromised patients may be eligible for a third dose of the vaccine, which is delivered sooner than the booster dose. If you fall into this category, please reach out to your Springfield Clinic physician to discuss a third dose and potential referral. 

    Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

    The CDC states that you can get a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines at the same visit. You no longer need to wait 14 days between vaccinations; therefore booster shots and the flu shot can be given at the same time. Children may get a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines, including flu vaccine, at the same time.

    Springfield Clinic will bill the vaccine administration to insurance. Based on our understanding of federal regulations, insurance plans should not hold the patient responsible for any co-payment or co-insurance. Please call a customer service representative (CSR) at 217.528.7541 if you have question about your bill.

    Our fees are standard by CPT code (a standardized code that represents a procedure or service), not subject to different fees based on insurance coverage.
