The Monroe County Department of Public Health has set up an appointment reservation system for immunocompromised individuals who qualify for a third dose of Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Third dose vaccines are available at all Monroe County vaccine clinics.

Eligible individuals are strongly encouraged to make an appointment through the online reservation system or by calling the COVID-19 Hotline at (585) 753-5555. While walk-ins are also welcome, the wait times may be longer without an appointment.



MCDPH recommends individuals contact their healthcare provider about whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them at this time. To receive a third dose, individuals must have received their second dose at least 28 days prior to getting an additional dose, and meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood;
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medications to suppress the immune system;
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system;
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome);
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection;
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids, cancer chemotherapy that causes severe immunosuppression, or other medications that may suppress your immune response.
