What to Know About COVID-19 This Winter

COVID-19 has been confusing and things have changed since it first started. The information below is to help you understand what you need to know today.

Vaccines/Shots

  • It is important to get your COVID-19 primary series vaccines (primary series is your first two shots of the vaccine).

  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19.

COVID-19 in 2022?

Booster Vaccines for COVID-19

A booster is an additional shot needed later because the primary series (your first two shots of Moderna/Pfizer, or one shot of Johnson and Johnson) protection has lowered over time. Booster shots are common for many vaccines, like flu, chickenpox, polio and now COVID-19. COVID-19 booster vaccines are available for anyone age 6 months and older.

You should get a booster shot if it has been 2 months since your last COVID-19 vaccine (and you have completed your primary series).

What if I just had COVID-19?

Some people may choose to wait to get the booster if they just had COVID-19. Experts say that is okay for most people! This is because your body has natural immunity for around three months from when you first tested positive. If you are unsure, talk to your doctor.

COVID-19 can be serious for people of all ages – the chances of becoming very sick or hospitalized with COVID-19 outweigh any risk of vaccine side effects.
