SPOKANE, Wash. — If you’re looking to get a COVID booster in the near future, the NATIVE Project is scheduling appointments right now for Pfizer’s third dose for its patients.

They are offering them to patients 18 and older. However, you have to wait six months after getting Pfizer’s second dose to get the booster.

You can only get a booster if you fall under these groups: 

  • You’re 65 and older
  • A resident of long-term care facilities
  • You’re 50-64 with underlying medical conditions
  • You’re 18-49 with underlying medical conditions (case-to-case basis)
  • You have an increased risk of exposure due to work environment
  • It’s been six months since your second Pfizer COVID-19 dose.

If you fall under these groups, here is the booster schedule: 

  • If you got fully vaccinated in January, February or March, you can schedule an appointment right now.
  • Those who got vaccinated in April can schedule sometime this month.
  • Those who vaccinated in May can schedule in November.
  • Those fully vaccinated in June can schedule in December.
  • Finally, those who got the vaccine in July will have to wait until January of next year.

If you’re a patient and want to schedule an appointment, you can call 509-209-6281.
