Receiving a Third Dose of the COVID Vaccine

As of Thursday, August 12, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccines for some people with weakened immune systems. Based on this authorization, Temple Health patients who are at risk of an incomplete immune response from their initial two doses, or those who are currently at heightened risk because they are immunocompromised, will be eligible to receive a third dose at Temple University Hospital – Main Campus or Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus.

These patients should receive the third dose of the vaccine at least 28 days following the two-dose regimen of the same mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna). There is not enough data to support giving immunocompromised patients an additional dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at this time. The FDA and CDC continue to evaluate this and will provide a recommendation when possible.

Patients with the following conditions may be eligible:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, etc.)
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response (such as monoclonal antibodies)
  • Been receiving chronic hemodialysis
  • Chronic rheumatologic conditions requiring immunocompromising treatment (such as steroids and monoclonal antibodies)

Fully vaccinated individuals who are not immunocompromised should not get an additional dose of the vaccine at this time. We're working to contact people who are eligible for a third dose to schedule an appointment.
