COVID-19 Vaccination

Stay up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccines to make sure you're as protected as possible. Everyone 5+ should get a booster and some people should get two boosters. Check out the CDC's website to see when you need a booster!  

* * The FDA recently authorized the first COVID-19 vaccine booster for kids ages 5 to 11. We can now give these boosters at our 555 Towner clinic!

General COVID-19 Vaccine Information

  • COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 5 and up. They are free, safe, effective, and easy to get! 
  • In most situations, Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are preferred over the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for primary and booster vaccination. The FDA has revised its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and limited the authorized use of the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. The updated EUA limits use to individuals 18 + for whom other authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines are not accessible or clinically appropriate; or individuals 18+ who elect to receive the J&J COVID-19 vaccine because they would otherwise not receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more here.  

Vaccines for Kids Ages 5-17 Years 

  • 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.

Boosters Doses

Everyone 5+ should get a booster dose. It's important to stay up-to-date on your COVID-19 vaccines to have the best protection. See more about who should get a booster and when on the CDC's website here. 

For questions about which booster to receive, we recommend speaking with your health care provider.

Additional Doses (for moderately to severely immunocompromised people)
