Getting Vaccinated
MAILING LIST
  • People ages 6 months and up should get all COVID-19 primary series doses (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson)

  • Be sure to contact your primary care provider to see which vaccine regimen is best for you

  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19

  • Novavax is not authorized for use as a booster dose at this time.

 

Learn more about  specific guidelines by age group:

As we age, our immune system weakens and it becomes harder to fight off common illnesses. It is essential to protect ourselves from disease by getting routinely vaccinated. It's never too late to protect yourself and your loved ones!

 

Here's a list of some important vaccines for older adults and a short description of their vaccine regimen.

  • Shingles vaccine: One-time vaccine given in two shots over two to six months

  • Pneumonia vaccine: One-time vaccine given in two shots at least one year apart

  • Hepatitis B vaccine: One-time vaccine given in two to four shots over one to six months for people who are medium to high risk, including people with diabetes

  • Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis/whooping cough): One shot if you’ve never been vaccinated, and a booster every ten years.
