Upcoming COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics
Updated COVID-19 Booster Information: COVID-19 boosters have been approved for all three COVID-19 vaccine products for ages 12+. Those who have had Pfizer or Moderna are eligible for a booster 5+ months after their initial series, and those who received Johnson & Johnson are eligible 2+ months after their initial vaccination. Eligible booster populations over 18 are able to choose any of the three vaccinations for their booster vaccination as long as they have completed the initial series. Boosters eligible for ages 12-17 are Pfizer only.
The FDA has also approved an additional COVID-19 vaccine booster for those who are immunocompromised (ages 12+) and for those who are 50+. Immunocompromised individuals are eligible 3+ months after their 3rd dose and those 50+ are eligible 4+ months after their first booster dose.
