What information do I need to bring to my appointment for a third dose or booster shot?

You should bring your existing paper vaccination card to your appointment, if possible.

If you were vaccinated by UHS or shared your vaccine records through MyUHS you do not need to take additional steps.

If your vaccination record is not on file with UHS, share your records as soon as possible. Follow these instructions and allow up to five business days for it to process.

If your record is not in MyUHS at the time of your appointment, you will need to provide a paper or electronic copy of your vaccination record that includes your name, the vaccine manufacturer and the dates it was administered. If you were vaccinated in Wisconsin, you should be able to access that information in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry.

Booster shots are only available to individuals fully vaccinated at least six months ago with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. There is currently no recommendation for booster shots for those who received the Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines

Immunocompromised students and employees who already received two doses of Pfizer or Moderna are eligible for a third dose of the same vaccine. Note this is different from a booster. You do not need to bring proof of your medical condition to your appointment, and you do not need to wait 6 months. Find more information online.

There is no recommendation at this time for additional doses of Johnson and Johnson.
