COVID-19 Vaccines are Available at Many Locations
All COVID-19 vaccines, including the updated booster, are widely available in our community. Anyone 6 months and older can officially get the COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone 5 years and older who completed their primary COVID-19 vaccine series or received their last COVID-19 booster at least 2 months ago is eligible for the updated COVID-19 Booster.

Vaccination is still the best defense against severe illness. Give your health a boost by being fully up to date on your COVID series for the best protection.
What You Need To Know Before Getting Vaccinated:
- No ID or specific documents are needed when someone arrives to get a vaccine.
- The person will have to complete a short registration form with their name and contact information.
- The ability to get a vaccine is not impacted by citizenship or immigration status.
- Language services are available on site.
- Please wear a mask to the immunization site.
- The process from check-in to vaccine administration takes about 10 minutes. Following the vaccine, people are monitored for adverse reactions for 15 or 30 minutes prior to being released.
The decision to get a COVID vaccine is a personal choice and we encourage people who have questions to talk with their primary care provider or seek information from scientific sources like the CDC. Remember that if you don’t get immunized against COVID-19, you will remain at risk for illness and severe disease. The fairly minor side effects of the vaccine are nothing compared to the potential harm from COVID-19 illness.
