Under CDC policy, those who work in education, including employees at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, qualify to receive a booster shot of Pfizer vaccine six months after receiving a second dose of Pfizer.
Boosters are available to faculty, staff and student employees (both undergraduate and graduate) of any age.
The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department is holding booster clinics throughout October. Those attending the clinics must bring their vaccination cards and plan to wait 15 minutes following the vaccination. Appointments for the clinics can be made here.
