General COVID-19 Vaccine Information
COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 5 and up.
The Washtenaw County Health Department is offering Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson initial vaccinations and booster doses at our 555 Towner clinic in Ypsilanti. If possible, please bring your identification and vaccination card (if coming in for a booster).
The CDC recently updated its recommendations with a preference for people to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) over the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Receiving any COVID-19 vaccine is better than being unvaccinated.
You do not need to live or work in Washtenaw County to be vaccinated at our clinics. Everyone is welcome, including individuals who are not U.S. residents.
COVID vaccine is widely available. Plan to go where it is easiest for you and your family.
Vaccines for Kids Ages 5-17 Years
COVID-19 vaccine is officially authorized for everyone age 5 and up!
A parent or guardian should be present when minors are getting vaccinated. If a parent/guardian cannot be present, an adult must accompany the minor. Written permission and a number where the parent/guardian can be reached is required. Identification is helpful for the parent or guardian or adult, but not required. Identification is not required for minors.
Everyone 12+ should get a booster dose:
- If you originally received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine: get a booster dose 5 months after your second dose.
- If you originally received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine: get a booster dose 2 months after your initial dose.
Individuals 18+ may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose from the Health Department. For questions about which booster to receive, we recommend speaking with your health care provider for advice.
See more booster information from the CDC here.
Additional Doses (for moderately to severely immunocompromised people)
For those with moderately to severely compromised immune systems who received Pfizer or Moderna initially: some individuals ages 5+ with moderately to severely compromised immune systems should receive an additional dose (3rd dose) of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. This additional dose is intended to improve the response of people who are immunocompromised to their initial vaccine series.
Individuals with compromised immune systems who received a 3rd dose of mRNA vaccine are still eligible for a booster dose - see information on when to receive a booster dose here.
