Information About Boosters

  

*Boosters are NOT REQUIRED to be given at exactly 28 days. Boosters may be given after 28 days, but not before. You may choose to get your booster on following weeks at other community clinic offerings. If you received your first dose at an organization-specific clinic, public health is still planning to return for scheduled booster clinics (i.e. hospitals, Meeker Fire House, etc). 

 

Please be advised that testing for COVID-19 is recommended for all symptomatic individuals (please see CDC website for list of symptoms), and all individuals who are exposed to a known case. If you have no symptoms, but have been exposed, it is advised to test 5-7 days after your last known exposure, or as soon as possible after you begin to develop symptoms.
