COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months old and up. They are safe, effective, and easy to get!

CDC has recommended everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine this fall/winter. COVID-19 is always changing and protection from COVID-19 vaccines declines over time. This vaccine is a better match to protect against current variants. 

Adults 65+ should get an additional updated COVID vaccine dose (as of the CDC's recommendation on 2/28/24). At the Health Department, we can start scheduling these additional doses on Monday, March 4.
