Basic Information and Guidance

COVID vaccines and boosters protect against serious illness, hospitalization, or death from COVID. Anyone age 6 months and older is eligible to be vaccinated. After receiving the primary series of vaccines, many people are eligible to receive a booster dose to increase immunity that has waned over time and offer additional protection.

The CDC recommends that everyone who is eligible get vaccinated, and that everyone stay up to date with COVID vaccinations and boosters. Check to see if you are up to date on your COVID vaccines and boosters at:

Guidance for people with weakened immune systems

People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system) are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness and death. Additionally, their immune response to COVID-19 vaccination may not be as strong as in people who are not immunocompromised. If you are immunocompromised, you may need to receive more doses of COVID vaccine than someone who is not immunocompromised.
