CDC has recommended everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 this fall and winter. More info here.
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.
Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available later this week. Check out vaccines.gov to find a provider near you!
At the Health Department, we don't have the updated vaccine yet. Please don’t call to schedule yet. We will share updates as we have them.
In the meantime, the existing bivalent vaccines are no longer authorized. No COVID-19 vaccines are available until the new, updated version becomes available.
Thank you for your patience!
COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months old and up. They are safe, effective, and easy to get!
