Good Afternoon Everyone, Thank you for joining us today. I am going to be adding some of the important links to information and guidance regarding the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. Thank you.

would a third dose patient need a booster dose 6 months after completing a 3 dose initial series?

Here is the link to the Clinical Considerations recently updated on September 27th. You will find clinical guidance about the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine within this guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/covid-19-vaccines-us.html

@JYeargin--No they will not need another dose of COVI
Heidi
39:24
Sorry I hit enter to soon. They do not need another dose at this time but stay tuned because we have this as one of our questions. You will see it towards the end of our presentation today :)

Because the 3rd dose in those immunocompromised patients is part of their primary series, then I would read the recs as saying 6 months later they would qualify for a booster.

I am getting some pushback from staff using the WHO and Israel studies showing natural immunity is better, and they don't feel they need to vaccinate. Can you send any studies to help me address their position? They are touting their data as peer reviewed studies. I need to be able to show other peer reviewed studies about vaccinations for those who already were infected with COVID19. Thanks in advance for the help.

@Pwells--those moderately to severely immunocompromised are a 2-dose primary series of an mRNA vaccine and then 28 days after the second dose they should receive a 3rd mRNA COVID-19 vaccine dose. We are going to address this in our fact section of this presentation. Stay tuned :)

Can we get a copy of this slide presentation?

Good afternoon from a disability standpoint there has been a distrust due to the booster vs third dose. A target explanation should be considered to simply for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities the Booster recommendations are once again not addressing those disabilities as a priority group and should consider be MDDHS.

fully one third of infected patients do not develop long term immunity. LOTS of folks getting second or third infections.

@Kevin Evans--Thank you for your comment and request. This is something that we can work on and help with. In order to get your email, can you send us an email at checcimms@michigan.gov This way we can send to you directly. Also, I would love to be able to address this to everyone so when we finish this resource collection I will make a note to try and send this out as an Education Corner email. Thank you

@William Hayes We will be posting the slides and recording within a few days of the presentation at www.michigan.gov/covidvaccineprovider IF you do not receive our emails, please let us know at checcimms@michigan.gov and we will be sure to get you added to receiving our education emails. We will be sending a meeting wrap up by email as well.

Do you have any information on the percentage of cases you are seeing that are breakthrough cases? The numbers I am getting are conflicting.

If someone received their first shot in December and refused a 2nd dose but would like one now, would they get just one shot now to be fully vaccinated or should they start over with series?
Heidi
55:04
@Erin Dotten thank you for your comment. This is something that we will bring back to MDHHS and administration. We have to follow the guidance we have from ACIP and what is within the authorization for use. However, i will bring this back and thank you for being such a positive advocate. Thank you

Is there any idea if or when an additional dose or booster of the J&J vaccine may be recommended?
Kevin Evans, MTB Martha T. Berry County Med Care Facility
01:02:33
will do and am most grateful!
PWells
01:02:48
those "studies" were limited case reports, NOT peer reviewed, controlled trials.
PWells
01:03:49
IS the conent form changing asking for risk factors for a booster? I am not challenging folks who say they need a booster

`if we only have Pfizer, and a former Moderna patient needs a THIRD DOSE, can we 3rd dose with Pfizer?
William Hayes
01:15:10
Thank you for sharing this information. There has been a good deal of misinformation surrounding this topic. Today is the first time I am hearing the difference between a booster vs. an additional dose.
PWells
01:15:44
we appreciate you!
PWells
01:16:37
right, not a booster
PWells
01:17:29
I appreciate that. But in many cases we have patients who have a lot of barriers and might not come back. TTHANK YOU!
