UPDATE 10/25/21 Appointment Scheduler Links Now Posted Below

JEFFERSON COUNTY— Two Moderna booster vaccination clinics are planned for people 65 years of age and older and those aged 18 to 64 who are at high risk of severe COVID-19.

On or after Monday, October 25, at 9 AM, you may schedule your appointment. Appointments are required.

Schedule by visiting the Jefferson County Public Health webpage at https://jeffersoncountypublichealth.org/1429/COVID-19 or by calling the Department of Emergency Management Call Center at 360-344-9791. 

More about eligibility/mix & match:

  • You should receive your Moderna booster six months after receiving your second dose. (Moderna boosters are half the dosage of a primary or secondary shot). 
  • You may also receive a Moderna booster if you are six months past your second dose of Pfizer or two months past your Johnson & Johnson vaccination. 
  • If you are moderately to severely immunocompromised, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend you receive a full, third dose (A Moderna booster is a 1/2 dose). Third doses will NOT be offered at this clinic. Contact your healthcare provider or local pharmacy to schedule a third dose, if needed.   

Bring proof of vaccination.

Forms of proof include a vaccination card or a copy of your vaccination record from Washington State Department of Health, which you may retrieve at no cost by logging in to https://wa.myir.net/register. Digital or hard copies of proof will be accepted.

The clinic will not replace lost vaccination cards. If your vaccination card is laminated, you will be issued an additional card with only the booster dose listed.
