GS offers Pfizer booster shots: Should you get one?

Shay Parker, Correspondent

Georgia Southern is now offering the Pfizer booster shot on campus to any faculty, staff, or student who is eligible based on FDA and CDC guidance.

The CDC advises those that are ‘high risk’ because of underlying conditions like diabetes, obesity, sickle cell or being immunocompromised get the booster shot. 

Additionally heavy smokers, those with substance use disorders, other health conditions and those in high-risk occupational or institutional settings are also recommended to get their booster.

In order to get the booster, the two doses of Pfizer vaccine must have been completed at least six months ago.

Appointments for booster shots can be made through MyGS.
