Covid-19 Vaccine Information

For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Basic Protective Measures Against the Coronavirus

Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others, especially the elderly. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wear your mask!- Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others.

Wash your hands frequently- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap and warm water, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth- Your hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and enter your body.

Maintain social distancing- Try to keep at least 6 feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. If you are too close, you can breath in the droplets that may contain viruses.

Practice respiratory hygiene- Make sure you, and the people around you cover their mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing. If using a tissue dispose of immediately.

If you have a fever (over 101 degrees), cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you feel you should be seen by a medical provider call in advance.
