Vaccine Booster Information
The CDC continues to recommend that all eligible adults, adolescents, and children 5 and older be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, which includes getting an initial booster when eligible. Boosters are safe, and people over the age of 50 can now get an additional booster 4 months after their prior dose to increase their protection further.
