​Where can I get my COVID-19 Bivalent booster?

At a GHC-SCW Vaccination Clinic

​​​GHC-SCW is currently working on scheduling three separate vaccination clinics where members will be able to receive both their flu vaccine and COVID-19 bivalent booster if they are eligible.

  • These clinics will take place on several Saturdays in September and October at our administrative offices in Madison, WI at 1265 John Q Hammons Dr., Madison, WI.
  • Scheduling is currently closed and we currently do not have any availability at these clinics. Please continue to check back for any updates or openings.

At Costco or Hy-Vee​

GHC-SCW members may also get their COVID-19 bivalent booster if they are eligible while getting their flu shot at either Costco or Hy-Vee. Just be sure to tell your pharmacist when you arrive.

  • Visit Costco's website here to schedule or for more information on pharmacy hours and locations.
  • Visit Hy-Vee's website here to schedule or for more information on pharmacy hours and locations.

At Public Health Madison Dane County Vaccination Sites 

If you are within the Dane County area you may also visit one of Public Health Madison and Dane County's vaccine clinics located at their East Washington and South Madison offices. Appointments are not required but are recommended. Head here for more information on clinic hours and scheduling information.

COVID-19 Vaccine and Booster Eligiblity 

U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine to authorize bivalent formulations of the vaccines for use as a single booster dose at least two months following primary or booster vaccination(s). 

Who is eligible to receive a single COVID-19 Bivalent booster dose and when:

  • Individuals 18 years of age and older are eligible for a single booster dose of the Moderna Bivalent​COVID-19 Vaccine, if it has been at least two months since they have completed primary vaccination or have received the most recent booster dose with any authorized or approved monovalent COVID-19 vaccine. 

  • ​Individuals 12 years of age and older are eligible for a single booster dose of the Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine, if it has been at least two months since they have completed primary vaccination or have received the most recent booster dose with any authorized or approved monovalent COVID-19 vaccine.​ 

COVID-19 vaccine dosage is based on age on the day of vaccination, not on size or weight. Children get a smaller dose of COVID-19 vaccine than teens and adults based on the age group to which they belong.

​Who Is Moderately or Severely Immunocompromised?

People are considered to be moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system) due to several types of conditions and treatments. Examples include:

  • 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 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell therapy (a treatment to help your immune system attach to and kill cancer cells) or received a stem cell transplant (within the last 2 years)
  • 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 their immune response

Talk to your healthcare provider about COVID-19 vaccination and your medical condition.
