Updated Booster Approved
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH) have approved the distribution of a bivalent COVID-19 booster formulated to address the most recent variants of the virus.

Individuals qualifying for the updated booster from Pfizer include:

  • Any individual 12 years old or older who completed their primary doses or booster doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines at least two months ago.
  • Any individual 18 years old or older who completed their primary dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

Community members seeking the updated booster should be directed to visit the Hospital website (evanhospital.com/virus) or call the hotline at 570-522-4530, option 1 between 9 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday.

Qualifying employees seeking the updated booster should contact their primary care physician, visit the Hospital website (evanhospital.com/virus), or call the hotline at 570-522-4530, option 1 between 9 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday.

Employees, providers, and volunteers are not required by Hospital COVID-19 vaccine policy nor CMS policy to receive the updated booster in order to be considered fully vaccinated. We are encouraging everyone to be educated on the booster eligibility requirements and review the benefits in tandem with their healthcare provider.

mRNA Monovalent Vaccine Update
According to the CDC and PA DOH, the adult Moderna and Pfizer mRNA monovalent vaccines are no longer approved for use as booster doses. All patients 12 years old and older who were scheduled for a monovalent booster dose have been or are being rescheduled for a bivalent booster dose appointment.

No action is required by these individuals. The hotline staff is contacting each patient to reschedule the appointment.

Continue Reporting COVID-19 Time
The potential remains for Evangelical to receive funding based on employee and provider time related to COVID-19 activities.

All employees and providers are asked to continue tracking and submitting COVID-19 time to timekeepers each pay period. Timekeepers are asked to continue submitting COVID-19 tracking sheets to Payroll each pay period.

All COVID-19 activities—including but not limited to meeting about, planning, and executing COVID-19 related actions as well as direct patient care—qualify and should be recorded. The daily safety huddle does not qualify as a COVID-19 activity.

We appreciate your continued cooperation with this effort. 

Kendra Aucker,
President and CEO
