Pfizer booster shots to begin in Flathead County

Flathead City-County Health Officer Joe Russell said the health department will begin giving Pfizer booster shots, now that the Centers for Disease Control’s independent advisory committee has recommended certain people get a booster shot at least six months after the completion of their Pfizer vaccine primary series.

Russell provided information from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices sent to him on Friday via the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services regarding the details of who is eligible for a booster shot. He noted the booster shots apply only to those who have had the Pfizer vaccine.
