A 3rd dose of an mRNA vaccine (either Pfizer or Moderna) for immunocompromised people was recently approved by the FDA. If you are taking a medication that suppresses your immune system, please contact your CCAO provider to discuss whether you are a candidate for a 3rd shot. At this time, J&J has submitted their data to the FDA, but there are no recommendations for getting a 2nd J&J shot if that was the initial vaccine.

An infusion of antibodies directed against the spike protein of coronavirus has been shown to reduce the viral load and decrease the chance of having to go to the hospital for COVID. Patients taking certain medications that suppress the immune system may be candidates for getting this treatment. This treatment works best when it is given as soon as possible. To see if it is right for you, please contact your CCAO provider as soon as possible if you have a compromised immune system and
1) test positive for COVID or
2) are in close contact with someone with COVID.
