WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) - Hy-Vee has announced it will be offering free Pfizer COVID-19 booster doses at pharmacy locations across its eight-state region.

The new booster, recently approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is recommended for Pfizer vaccine recipients who meet the following criteria:

  • It's been six months since getting their second Pfizer vaccine dose.
  • Are above the age of 65.
  • They're 18 or older and have underlying medical conditions.
  • They're between the ages of 18 and 64 and have an increased risk of COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of their occupation.

Those wishing to get a booster are recommended to go to Hy-Vee.com/covidvaccine to set up an appointment.

At this time, there is not a booster dose authorized for Moderna vaccine recipients, nor is there an additional vaccine dose authorized for Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients. It is recommended (but not required) that vaccine recipients bring the following to their appointment:

  • Insurance card (if they have insurance) and Medicare Part B red, white and blue card (if Medicare recipient)
  • Photo ID.
  • Their COVID-19 vaccination record card.

Masks are required. If individuals do not have insurance, they can still be vaccinated. Individuals receiving a COVID-19 booster or third dose will need to self-attest to their eligibility. Individuals will not be required to show documentation to prove eligibility.
