Update August 13, 2021: People with moderately and severely immunocompromising conditions* should receive another dose of COVID-19 vaccine as part of their primary series. If you are interested in an additional vaccination due to your immunocompromised condition, MDH recommends you consult with your medical provider. Your clinical team is best able to assess the degree of altered immunocompetence and optimal timing of vaccination, with attention paid to current or planned immunosuppressive therapies.
