COVID-19 Vaccinations

Protect yourself, your family, and your community. 

Vaccines will help bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end.


Everyone 12 years of age and older is eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Please get vaccinated when you can. Majol  |  Español

The CDC recommends people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) following their initial two-dose vaccination series. This third dose should be the same vaccine as the first two doses and can be received a minimum of four weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

Included in CDC’s recommendation are people with a range of conditions, such as recipients of organ or stem cell transplants, people with advanced or untreated HIV infection, active recipients of treatment for cancer, people who are taking some medications that weaken the immune system, and others. See a full list of conditions.

Immunocompromised individuals will not be required to provide proof of their condition when seeking their third vaccine dose. Any COVID-19 vaccine provider can administer the third dose to immunocompromised people seeking this additional vaccination.
