CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Hy-Vee announced on Friday that free Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster doses are now available at all Hy-Vee Pharmacy locations.

It comes after the FDA authorized booster shots for Americans age 65 and older, those age 18 and older with underlying health conditions, and those working jobs that put them at high risk. That is, if it’s at least six months after the person received their second dose.

Hy-Vee said it is also offering a $10 Hy-Vee gift card to patients who complete their COVID-19 vaccination, including those who receive their booster, with Hy-Vee between June 1 and November 1.

The Pfizer vaccine is the only one to receive approval for additional doses at this time. The CDC strongly recommends people receive additional doses from the same vaccine manufacturer.
