This message to all students, faculty and staff has been approved by Kyle Clark, Vice President for Finance and Administration.
The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have officially authorized the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine under Emergency Use Authorization for Booster vaccinations.
At this time, the University does not offer the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine and will only be offering the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine to those who received their Moderna series through the University. The University will reach out to those who received their Moderna series at the FSU COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic with information on specific Moderna Booster clinic dates and times.
The Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention also authorized the mixing and matching of different COVID-19 vaccine brands for Booster vaccinations. Starting Tuesday, November 2, the FSU COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic will allow those who received either the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Series or the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine to receive a Pfizer Booster vaccine as long as they meet eligibility and are past the recommended time frames from completion of the initial series. Currently, Booster doses are not offered for those persons who completed their vaccination series with a vaccine other than Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson (Janssen).
Appointments will be required for Booster vaccinations. The University will send an updated announcement when appointments are released for November with instructions on how to register.
For those who are eligible and would like to receive a Moderna or Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine Booster, please visit Vaccines.gov to find a provider near you.
