All About COVID-19 Vaccinations

 

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at reducing the risk of contracting COVID-19. For vaccinated individuals, the risk for severe disease and hospitalization is substantially lower. Getting vaccinated is the single best thing you can do to protect yourself, your family and friends, and our community from further spread of COVID-19. Vaccination is recommended for everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated and does not have a medical reason that would advise against vaccination.

WHO SHOULD GET A COVID-19 VACCINE?

COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older.  For more information visit:  Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccine CDC 

Moderately or severely immunocompromised people may be recommended to receive an additional primary dose.
