Update as of Aug. 13, 2021: The FDA and CDC are recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional (third) dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Studies indicate some immunocompromised people have a reduced immune response following a primary two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series, and a third mRNA vaccine dose may enhance immune response.
Please speak with your health care provider to find out whether an additional vaccine dose is appropriate for you, if you have:
- Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
- 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, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
- Advanced or untreated HIV infection
- Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response
