Vaccines for Kids Ages 5-17 Years 

COVID-19 vaccine is officially authorized for everyone age 5 and up! We are giving vaccines to kids under the age of 18 by appointment only

  • 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. 
  • COVID vaccine is widely available. Check with your pediatrician or pharmacy. Plan to go where it is easiest for you and your family.

Vaccines, Boosters and Additional Doses for Adults Age 18+

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. Also bring your vaccination card if you are coming for a booster dose. See more booster information from the CDC here

For those who received an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine: You should get a booster if you are 50+ or 18+ and living in a long-term care setting. You may get a booster if you are 18+. Boosters can be given at least 6 months after your second dose. Boosters are not authorized for for those under 18 at this time.

For those who received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: Individuals should get a COVID-19 booster dose at least 2 months after their initial dose. 

For those with moderately to severely compromised immune systems who received Pfizer or Moderna initially: Individuals 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 eligible for a booster dose of Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson 6 months after their 3rd dose was administered. 

Individuals 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.

COVID-19 Prevention Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 means you can start doing some of the things you stopped doing because of the pandemic. You're considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your last dose in a vaccine series (for Pfizer or Moderna, that's 2 weeks after your second dose; for Johnson & Johnson, that's 2 weeks after your one dose).

See these pages from the CDC on what is safe to do once you're fully vaccinated:
