COVID-19 Vaccine Information

VACCINATION INFORMATION
CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine following their initial 2-dose vaccination series. Fully vaccinated people with healthy immune systems do not need another dose of COVID-19 vaccine at this time.

To see if you qualify for a third dose at this time, please see these guidelines.
