Protect your Family by getting the Covid-19 Booster


According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) getting a booster reduces the chances of getting infected by Covid-19.

Covid-19 has over the years mutated(changed) its forms and different variants have emerged and the best the community at large can do is to get booster vaccine to minimize chances of getting infected.

The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) researchers have shown from their statistical data that from 2019 to 2023 people with a booster jab have better chance to fight the Covid-19 infection than those without a booster jab.

About COVID-19 Vaccine

COVID-19 vaccine recommendations

There are three different vaccines available: Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax (Note: Novavax is only authorized for people 12 years of age and older). The CDC does not recommend one of the vaccines over the other. Each vaccine helps protect people from getting very sick with COVID-19. For more information on how vaccines are approved/authorized, made, and tested visit Available COVID-19 Vaccines and Safety.

Vaccination is recommended for all people 6 months of age and older.

  • Children 6 months to 4 years of age may need multiple doses of COVID-19 vaccine to be up to date, including at least one dose of the updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine. The number of recommended doses depends on COVID-19 vaccines previously received, their age, and whether the person has a weakened immune system.
  • People 5 to 11 years of age should get one updated Pfizer or Moderna vaccine regardless of whether they’ve received any previous COVID-19 vaccine dose(s) to be up to date.
  • People 12 years and older who have not previously received any COVID-19 vaccine dose(s) and choose to get Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, should get one dose to be up to date.
  • People 12 years and older who have not previously received any COVID-19 vaccine and choose to get Novavax vaccine should get two updated Novavax doses to be up to date.
  • People 12 years and older who have received any previous COVID-19 vaccine(s) and choose to get Novavax should get one updated Novavax dose to be up to date.
  • Some people may get additional doses of updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines:
    • People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get one additional dose of updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine two or more months after the last COVID-19 vaccine. They also may receive additional updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine doses and should talk to their health care provider.

How to get a COVID-19 vaccine

Not all vaccination locations will have each vaccine available. The most important thing is not to miss an opportunity to get vaccinated. For more information on the vaccines visit CDC: Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines.

  • In-home COVID-19 vaccination is available upon request for those who may have difficulties going to a clinic or other vaccine location. Learn more about eligibility for an in-home vaccine and how to request an appointment at In-Home Vaccination Program.

COVID-19 vaccines will still be free for most Americans through their health insurance plans. Check with your insurance provider for coverage details. From fall 2023 forward, COVID-19 vaccine will be available like other vaccine products for uninsured and underinsured adults. Uninsured and underinsured adults 19 years of age and older may receive free vaccines from federally qualified health centers, pharmacies, and other Uninsured and Underinsured Adult Vaccine providers participating in CDC’s Bridge Access Program.
