Vaccine Info

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone ages 6 months and over be vaccinated as soon as possible.  COVID-19 vaccines are available to everyone at no cost, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.  Additional doses are recommended for those who are immunocompromised and booster shots are recommended to everyone age 5 and older.  

When should I get my booster vaccination?

  • People age 12 and older are now recommended to get an updated bivalent booster dose at least 2 months after their last COVID-19 shot. That means the bivalent booster may be given after a person’s primary series or after their last booster shot.
