Boosters are an important part of protecting yourself from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. They are recommended for most people.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone ages 5 years and older should get 1 booster after completing their COVID-19 vaccine primary series.

To determine when or if you (or your child) can get one or more COVID-19 boosters, read Find out When to Get a Booster

Choosing Your COVID-19 Booster Shot

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Individuals seeking to receive their additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine may visit during clinic hours with no appointment necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19 Vaccination  CDC Updated June 19, 2022  

Your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card and Booster Shots

At your first vaccination appointment, you should have received a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Bring this vaccination card to your booster shot vaccination appointment.

If you did not receive a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card at your first appointment, contact the vaccination site where you got your first shot or your state health department to find out how you can get a card. Learn more about what to do if you need a copy of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card.

If there was ever a time to get vaccinated, now is the time. Protect yourself and loved ones from COVID-19. Get a COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

Let's Debunk the Myths - Bust Common Myths and learn the facts.

Accurate vaccine information is critical and can help stop common myths and rumors. It can be difficult to know which sources of information you can trust. Learn more about finding credible vaccine information.


How the Vaccine Works

The vaccine structure allows the particles to imitate the real coronavirus with crown-like studs. To keep the fragile molecules from being destroyed when they enter the human body, vaccine developers wrap them in a lipid-protein. This allows our bodies time to recognize them and our healthy cells to build a defense against the spiked proteins. The vaccine is like an imposter, not the real thing. It doesn’t include any live, active coronavirus.

Now, you may feel fatigued and achy after receiving the vaccine, much like when you have the flu shot. This is a good thing. It means your body recognizes something foreign and is fighting it off. This is how we build immunity. Stop the spread by receiving your vaccination.


Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine?
As with any vaccine, you may have temporary reactions like a sore arm, headache, or feeling tired and achy for a day or two after receiving the vaccine. 

When will I receive my second dose of the vaccine?
Moderna Vaccine: Based on guidance from the CDC, the second dose can be administered up to six weeks, or 42 days, after the first dose. The recommended target date reflected on your Vaccination Record Card is 28 days from the first dose given. It is recommended you receive the second dose no sooner than 4 days before your target due date and no later than 14 days following your due date. Please visit our walk-in Vaccine Clinic on a Tuesday during hours of operation when you are due for your second dose. 

Pfizer Vaccine:Based on guidance from the CDC, the second dose can be administered up to six weeks, or 42 days after the first dose. The recommended target date reflected on your Vaccination Record Card is 21 days from the first dose given. Please visit our walk-in Vaccine Clinic on a Thursday during hours of operation when you are due for your second dose. 

Do I have to receive the second dose?
Yes, to build up your immunity you must receive both doses.

After I receive both doses, will I be able to go out in public without my mask?
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as Moderna or Pfizer vaccines and 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine. 

Most recent CDC guidance suggests that individuals who are fully vaccinated may resume activities as they did prior to the pandemic. Fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities without wearing a mask or socially distancing, except where required by law. For more information on most recent CDC guidelines, please visit www.cdc.gov.



What To Expect After Receiving Your 2nd Dose

Congratulations on receiving your COVID-19 Vaccine! Receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine is an important tool to help us stop this pandemic. Please review the following information on what to expect after receiving your 2nd dose. If you have further questions about side effects, please contact your primary care provider. 

Making Antibodies is Hard Work! 

Many individuals who have received the 2nd dose of the Vaccine are reporting a more significant immune response than experienced with the initial dose. Symptoms include fever, chills, fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain, nausea and vomiting, and soreness at the injection site. This is a very normal response to receiving the vaccine, and is a good indication that your body is working hard to recognize something that doesn't belong and is building an army of antibodies to defend against the COVID-19 enemy. 

If your symptoms extend beyond 48 hours from the date & time of your 2nd dose or symptoms include loss of taste or smell, cough or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care provider immediately.
