Reduce your risk, sign up for a COVID-19 booster shot
With the highly infectious Omicron variant now circulating rapidly in our region, it is more important than ever to take steps to reduce your risk – including getting a booster dose if you are eligible. If it has been at least six months since your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or at least two months since your single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you are eligible for a booster shot.
To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine booster, visit www.kingcounty.gov/vaccine or use the Washington State Department of Health’s vaccine locator to check out your options. And to help meet the demand for boosters, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sending its Mobile Community Vaccination Center to Federal Way and Auburn in December and January. This Community Vaccination Center will be providing free COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters to everyone ages five and older. To get more information and register for an appointment with the Mobile Clinic visit https://bit.ly/kc-comm-vax.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend everyone currently eligible should get a COVID-19 vaccine booster to maximize protection. CDC recommends the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines over the Johnson & Johnson for both initial and booster vaccinations.
