Updated COVID-19 Information for MNA Kidney Transplant Patients

    • MNA recommends that patients who are immunocompromised, like kidney transplant patients, continue to wear a mask and social distance and to ask those around them to do the same, even if all parties are vaccinated against COVID-19.

    • Recently the FDA approved the COVID-19 vaccine booster shot for some immunocompromised patients, which included solid organ transplant recipients. Our transplant nephrologists are recommending the COVID booster vaccine for all of our transplant patients. The following guidelines should be adhered to:

      • You must wait 28 days from your last vaccination
      • If you initially received the Pfizer vaccine, you should receive the Pfizer booster
      • If you received the Moderna vaccine, you should receive the Moderna booster
      • J and J vaccine, currently we do not have any recommendations regarding boosters. We will update you as soon as we have any further information.  
    • The booster vaccine is available at select CVS and Walgreen’s facilities.           
    • In addition, Atrium is offering the booster dose to immunocompromised patients at all their urgent care locations. Use “My Atrium” to schedule.
