COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment sent a message to patients who had received a COVID-19 vaccine from the Dr. Moma Health and Wellness Clinic, saying they needed to be re-vaccinated.
The CDHPE investigated Dr. Moma Health and Wellness Clinic after the Joint Vaccine Task Force was notified of irregularities in the storage and handling of vaccines.
On Friday, the CDPHE took 3,150 doses and discarded 150 doses.
At the time of the study, the clinic had administered 3,933 vaccines.
In an email obtained by 13 Investigates reporter Lauren Barnas, the CDPHE conducted a study that found that all patients who received a single COVID-19 vaccine at the vaccination clinic should be offered revaccination.
All shots of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are considered invalid.
The CDPHE recommends the following:
- Those who have received one dose of the Pfizer vaccine should receive two additional doses according to the timeframe below:
- Additional dose of Pfizer 21 days after your initial invalid Pfizer dose was received by Dr. Moma
- Last dose of Pfizer 21 days after that dose
- Those who have received one dose of the Moderna vaccine should receive two additional doses according to the timeframe below:
- Additional dose of Moderna 28 days after your initial invalid Moderna dose was received at Dr. Moma
- Last dose of Moderna 28 days after that dose
For anyone unsure of which vaccine they received at the clinic, they are advised to receive two additional doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine according to the timeframes below:
- Extra dose of Moderna or Pfizer 28 days after you received the first invalid mRNA dose from Dr. Moma
- Last dose of Moderna or Pfizer 28 days after that dose
