(KWWL) - Hy-Vee announces free COVID-19 booster shots available to all individuals 18 and older at Hy-Vee Pharmacy locations. Booster vaccines are free to all those eligible regardless of insurance coverage.
Hy-Vee made the announcement after the FDA and CDC recommend a booster dose for Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccien recipients 18 and older at least 6 months after their second vaccine dose.
A booster dose for Janssen is recommended for those 18 and older at least 2 months after their first vaccine.
Hy-Vee reports eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster given individuals follow the booster timeline of their primary vaccine manufacturer. CDC's recommendations allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Hy-Vee does recommend vaccine recipients bring their insurance card (if on insurance), Medicare Part B red, white and blue card (if on Medicare), photo ID and their COVID-19 vaccination record card. Masks will be needed.
