Due to the increasing prevalence of highly transmissible COVID-19 omicron subvariants, please ensure you are up to date on COVID vaccination. It is recommended that people get every vaccination for which they are eligible.*
- The CDC recommends that everyone ages 5 years and older get their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, and everyone ages 12 years and older also receive a booster. Some people can receive two boosters.
- People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have specific COVID-19 vaccine recommendations, including recommendations for a booster. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccine recommendations for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.
- Use the CDC’s COVID-19 booster tool to learn if and when you can get boosters to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.
- COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to follow data related to vaccine effectiveness and safety, waning immunity and protection against variants.
If you get sick and test positive, do not wait. Call your primary care provider about prescribing Paxlovid. It must be started within five days of symptom onset.
*The current CMS mandate for health care workers requires only the initial vaccine series.
