Now that vaccine is open to all that can receive it, take the first opportunity you have to get vaccinated.  There have been many doses given and it has proven itself safe and effective. People are still getting hospitalized and are still dying of COVID so get vaccinated. Parents, if you have teenagers they can get the Pfizer vaccine at age 16 and can get Moderna and J&J at age 18.  

Reminders for those who have received their COVID-19 vaccine and for everyone, continue to wear a mask to protect yourself and others. Stay at least 6 feet apart from others that don’t live with you and avoid crowds. Wash and sanitize your hands often and properly. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces often.

Tips for Your Vaccine Search

When searching for a vaccination site, remember:

  • While vaccine supply and distribution are expanding, not all local providers have vaccine each week and hubs may have waiting lists.
  • Do not show up at a hub or provider looking for a vaccine.
  • Instead, check the provider’s website. Call only if the website doesn’t answer your questions.
