The governor said people should first check their vaccine card to see if they’re eligible.
He said if it’s been six months since your second shot, you are eligible if you are in one of the following categories:
- You’re 65-years-old or older
- You’re over 18-years-old with underlying conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, or obesity
- You’re over 18-years-old and work or live in a high-risk environment
Hogan noted that if you received a Moderna vaccine and you’re immuno-compromised, you are also eligible. He added, however, that there is still no federal guidance on the Moderna booster shot for the wider population. Federal health officials have yet to provide any guidance on Johnson & Johnson boosters "whatsoever."
During Thursday’s press conference, the governor also said he was ordering health officials to accelerate plans for vaccinating children in anticipation of federal approval.
Finally, the governor said he wanted to highlight monoclonal antibody therapy for those who’ve been infected.
