Collin County Health Care Services spokesperson Darrell Willis II said that only Pfizer shots are approved as a booster shot, and recommended those interested in the booster vaccine seek them through pharmacies, primary care physicians, clinics and more. Like initial vaccines, the booster shot is free.
The available supply of COVID-19 vaccines is very high, according to Willis. He said eligible individuals can get them from many different vaccine providers. According to the CDC, people eligible for a booster shot include those age 65 and older, and those 18 and older who have underlying medical conditions or live or work in high-risk settings.
"Booster shots are readily available throughout Collin County," Willis said. “At this time, individuals do not need to sign up on any sort of waiting list to receive the Pfizer booster."
In Denton County, the public health department is offering people who have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine elsewhere a booster vaccine from the county.
On Sept. 29, the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council reported 325 patients with COVID-19 in Collin County. A total of eight intensive care unit beds in the county were reported that day.
