COVID-19 Update

The Federal Public Health Emergency Order has ended. This does NOT mean that COVID-19 is gone, but rather that we are equipped to treat this illness as we do with other illnesses without the use of emergency resources.

COVID-19 vaccines remain available to help prevent the spread of illness in our community. People aged 65 years and older may get one additional COVID-19 booster dose 4 or more months after their first updated booster. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get an additional booster dose 2 or more months after their last updated booster. Talk to your healthcare provider about additional COVID-19 booster doses.
