Upcoming Vaccine Clinic Day

Saturday, November 19

  • 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • 2900 Elmira Street in Sayre (Tops plaza)

Bivalent boosters target the most recent Omicron subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5, which are more contagious and more resistant than earlier strains of Omicron. We encourage this booster even for those who have received one or two boosters previously. You must wait at least two months after your most recent COVID vaccine or booster to receive the bivalent booster. 

  • The Moderna bivalent booster is approved for ages 18 and up
  • The Pfizer bivalent booster is approved for ages 12 and up

The CDC recommends that patients receive both the COVID booster and flu shot on the same day, but Guthrie will offer patients the choice of one or both.
 
Appointments can be made using eGuthrie. You will be able to select either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID booster, but please note that availability will vary each Saturday. The CDC has approved mixing boosters.

Please bring your insurance card and your COVID vaccination card to the clinic.

 

Boosters and Vaccinations for Ages 12 and Up

The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine boosters are now available at Guthrie primary care locations for anyone age 18 or older who received their second dose more than six months ago.

While Guthrie is not currently offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine booster, those who received the J&J vaccine at least 2 months ago can now receive the Pfizer or Moderna booster. The CDC’s recommendations currently permit receiving a COVID-19 booster vaccine type that is different from what you received for your initial vaccine series.

Appointments are required. Schedule your appointment in eGuthrie or by calling 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).

You must bring your vaccination card with you to your booster appointment.


Vaccination for Ages 5-11

Guthrie offers the Pfizer COVID vaccine to children, ages 5-11. The vaccine is available in select Guthrie Pediatric and Family Medicine offices in Pennsylvania and New York. Additional locations will be added based on vaccine availability.

  • Parents must accompany the child during the injection and appropriate wait time following immunization.
  • The pediatric dose is 0.2 mL, while the adult dose is 0.3 mL.
  • Just like adults, children ages 5-11 who receive the first shot will be scheduled for a second dose three weeks later to be fully vaccinated.

An appointment is required. To check locations and schedule an appointment, parents should use eGuthrie or call Central Scheduling at 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).


Vaccination for Under 5

Guthrie is now offering COVID-19 vaccines to children under 5 years old at select locations.

Corning Pediatrics, Sayre Pediatrics, Southern Tier Pediatrics, and Troy Pediatrics are accepting appointments for the Moderna infant vaccine, available to children ages 6 months to 5 years. Guthrie Wellsboro is accepting appointments for the Pfizer infant vaccine, available to children ages 6 months to 4 years.

Additional locations will be added and will be announced as soon as they are available. Patients can also check eGuthrie for available locations.

  • A parent or guardian must accompany the child during the injection and appropriate wait time following immunization.
  • Just like adults, children under 5 years old who receive the first shot will be scheduled for follow up doses during their appointment.

An appointment is required. To check locations and schedule an appointment, parents should use eGuthrie or call Central Scheduling at 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).

 

Some important notes about these vaccination clinics:

  • Please help us keep these clinics running smoothly by arriving at your scheduled appointment time, not before.
  • You can speed up your appointment by printing and completing the consent form before arriving.

Uninsured patients may receive this vaccine at no cost.  Please provide your current insurance information. Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial health plans will pay for the COVID vaccine services at no cost to the patient (plans may vary).

Questions about the COVID-19 vaccine?

Stay safe, while you wait for your vaccination. 

While you wait for your vaccination, we encourage you to continue to be safe, create your eGuthrie account so you’re ready to schedule your appointment when available, and take precautions each day to stay healthy including: 

  • Wearing a mask 
  • Social distancing by at least 6 feet (2 arm lengths) 
  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
  • Using alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available 
  • Disinfecting highly touched surfaces 
  • Avoiding large crowds and interaction with anyone who is sick 
  • Staying home when you’re sick, except to seek medical care

Don’t delay care if you’re sick. 

Guthrie facilities are maintaining strict guidelines to protect your health through all recommended cleaning and safety guidelines. We urge you to seek care if you become sick and to keep your appointments as your health is, as always, our number one priority. If you have any health concerns, please reach out to your doctor and ask if a virtual visit is right for you. 

Guthrie will continue to fight alongside our communities, and we thank you for your efforts throughout 2020, and into the future, to help slow the spread of the virus. 
Stay healthy and stay #GuthrieStrong.
