Medically High-Risk Individuals

We are prioritizing appointments for individuals with medical conditions considered high risk with COVID infection.

All available vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson) are safe and effective in preventing COVID-19. You should talk to your healthcare provider if you have questions about getting vaccinated and inform your vaccinator of any allergies or health conditions.
