COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

The West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District is currently offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday mornings from 9:00AM to 12:00PM at 580 Cottage Grove Rd, Suite 100, Bloomfield, CT 06002, by appointment only. Give us a call at 860-561-7900, x0 to schedule appointments or speak to a nurse for more information. Please bring a form of identification and insurance card, if you have one, to your vaccination appointment. There is no cost.

The “Third (3rd) Dose” vs The “Booster Shot” – What’s the Difference?

These two terms are often used interchangeably but there are some very important differences. Read below to find out what shot you can get!

The “Third (3rd) Dose” The “Booster Shot”

Currently, mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna* and Pfizer) when given as a “Third (3rd) Dose '' can be administered as early as 28 days after a second dose is received. The “Third (3rd) Dose” is ONLY recommended for those that are “Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised”. 

We recommend that you speak with your physician to see if you qualify before making an appointment. 

*Please Note: We currently only carry the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in our office.*

Data for “Booster Shots” is currently being evaluated. 

Preliminary data suggests that “Booster Shots” are best received at least 6 months after an individual has received their second dose of the vaccine. We will update with more information as it is received.

As always, we encourage you to have a conversation with your physician to discuss your individual care plan and to identify the best next steps to keep you healthy! The “Third (3rd) Dose” shot is by appointment only on Wednesdays from 9:00AM to 12:00PM at 580 Cottage Grove Rd, Suite 100, Bloomfield, CT 06002.  To schedule an appointment, please call us at 860-561-7900 x0.  Information is rapidly evolving but additional updates will be added to this site when it is available to us.
