Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Dose Reminders

As you place your future Moderna orders in ImmPact, we would like to remind providers of a few important points. Please keep in mind the following:

  • Upcoming orders of Moderna vaccine can be used for both 1st and 2nd doses.
  • Please do not set doses aside to be used only as 2nd doses.
  • When ordering, please take into consideration that the vaccine dosage for the booster dose (0.25 mL) is different than the dosage for the primary series (0.5 mL).
  • For example, if you are ordering 140 doses intended to be used for booster administration, you will get 280 doses out of it.

If you have any questions, please call the Maine Immunization Program at 207-287-3746.
