  • Have received your first two doses of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago OR
  • Have received your first two dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago OR
  • Have received your first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at lesat two months ago

“You can mix and match the doses if you talk to your physician first about it and figure out what’s the best route for you,” Huntsville Hospital COO Tracy Doughty said. “But we do offer the Pfizer shot at our John Hunt Park location.”

Appointments for boosters must be made on the Huntsville Hospital website.

Those getting a vaccine at the clinic will be required to present their vaccine card and proof of ID (such as a driver’s license or other photo ID). Masks are required while inside the clinic.
