COVID-19: Vaccine

DHS supports the CDC recommendation that anyone 18 and older receive a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after having received their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two months after their single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. All adults are recommended to receive a booster dose for the best protection against COVID-19. To learn more, read our statement.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, free, and widely available. Everyone 5 and older is recommended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. You do not need an ID or insurance to get a vaccine.
