Doctors at Saint Vincent’s Allegheny Health Network have decided not to wait on booster shots for the compromised patients.

Saint Vincent President Dr. Chris Clark said providing access to booster shots is a responsible decision for patients fighting cancer, who have recently gone through a transplant, or who face heavy treatments of steroids.

AHN Doctors will not give booster shots within 72 hours either before of after other treatments.

“We have a program in place. We’re starting with our cancer patients at AHN Saint Vincent and as of today we’ll be actively providing that booster shot to those patients,” said Dr. Chris Clark, President of AHN Saint Vincent.
