COVID-19 vaccines for children 5 years and older

The federal government has approved and is providing the COVID-19 vaccine free to children 5 years and older.


Booster shots information

For the facts on who can and should receive COVID-19 vaccines, visit the CDC's website. This site will list all particulars for various age groups and specifics for people with underlying medical conditions

Locally speaking... According to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, older adults age 65 years and older who received the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine are eligible for and should get booster shots. The risk of severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age and can also increase for adults of any age with underlying medical conditions.

Long-term care setting residents ages 18 years and older adults are also eligible for and should get booster shots. Because residents in long-term care settings live closely together in group settings and are often older adults with underlying medical conditions, they are at increased risk of infection and severe illness from COVID-19.

Individuals who received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine who are 18 and over are eligible for a booster shot 2 months after they were vaccinated.

Please note - Seniors should talk to their medical provider about mixing and matching vaccines for boosters.
