Hartzell's Pharmacy is currently providing Spikevax® (Moderna) 2023-2024 Formulation.
In mid-September the FDA and CDC approved Spikevax (Moderna) and Conmiraty (Pfizer-BioNTech) COVID-19 vaccines for administration this fall and winter. This 2023-2024 formulation is recommended for everyone aged 5 years and older to get 1 dose of the updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against serious illness from COVID-19. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get additional doses of updated COVID-19 vaccine.
This vaccine replaces the Bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, which are no longer recommended and available in the United States. The new formulation is focused on more recent and current circulating strains that have a higher incidence of causing severe disease. This is very similar to how a flu vaccine is updated every year to match the circulating strain.
The COVID-19 vaccine is no longer federally subsidized, and providers such as Hartzell's now purchase it privately. Vaccines are still covered by insurance, including private insurance, Medicare plans, and Medicaid plans. Patients will be asked to have their insurance cards presented prior to receiving the vaccine.
Uninsured children and uninsured adults would either have to pay for the vaccine or find a provider enrolled in Vaccine for Children Program and/or Bridge Access Program to receive federally covered vaccines at no or little charge. You can find a Bridge Access Program provider by visiting www.vaccines.gov and searching by zip code for a Bridge Access Program provider.
In-store and Curbside options are available for all vaccines. If you prefer a curbside appointment, please call the pharmacy when you arrive.
