Maine CDC Memos: Planning Efforts for Moderna Booster and Pfizer Vaccine for 5-11-year-olds
Planning is underway in anticipation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) decision regarding Moderna booster vaccines. As we await ACIP’s decision next week, we are continuing to work on our planning and preparedness efforts ahead of the final decision.
The proposed dosage size for Moderna’s booster dose is 0.25mL, which is half of the dosage size of the primary doses given. Please note that you will use a 1mL syringe to extract the 0.25mL booster dose.
Maine CDC is also preparing for the potential approval of an EUA for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for youth ages 5-11 years old by outlining the key differences between the adult/adolescent formulation and the pediatric formulation.
