Boosters added to COVID-19 vaccine options at WSU

All WSU and WSU Tech students and employees (18 or older) who are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine third dose or booster can receive a free COVID-19 vaccination through Student Health Services. 

To be eligible for the third dose or booster Pfizer vaccine, all three of the following criteria must be met:

  • Received two doses of Pfizer vaccine: A COVID vaccination card or other documentation is required to show proof of first two doses. It is not allowed or approved to receive a Pfizer booster if your first two vaccinations were Moderna or Johnson & Johnson.
  • Received the second Pfizer dose six months before the booster.
  • Fall into one or more of the following groups: 
    • Age 65 years and older
    • Age 18 years and older with one or more underlying conditions
    • Age 18 years and older with increased risk of COVID-19 because of workplace or institutional setting
