SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Sanford Health began offering the recently approved COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to those eligible on Tuesday, Sept. 28, a top health system official said.

Federal officials Sept. 23 authorized the Pfizer vaccine booster shot for those age 65 and older and those in high-risk groups, and health systems and other vaccine administrators have been making them available in the following days. The Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based health system is now offering them across its multi-state footprint, said Dr. Jeremy Cauwels, chief medical officer of Sanford Health.

"Sanford Health will be offering Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots for people over 65, those with underlying health conditions and people with jobs that put them at higher risk," Cauwels said in a statement released via Sanford Health News Monday.
