HCPH to Provide Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 Booster Doses to those 18 and Up

Registration Open for those 18 and Up Just in Time for the Holidays

Beginning Saturday, November 20th, the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccines will be available for all individuals 18 years and older, with or without pre-existing conditions, at Harris County Public Health (HCPH) vaccinations sites.

This announcement comes following Friday’s approval of the expanded booster dose eligibility from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). We encourage all residents to get their booster dose before the upcoming holidays as more people begin to travel and gather with friends and family.

Residents who completed their two-dose mRNA vaccine series (Pfizer or Moderna) at least six months ago and anyone who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago are encouraged to get their booster dose.

All COVID-19 vaccines provide strong protection for most people. A booster vaccine is an additional dose given after the protection provided by the original series has begun to decrease over time. The booster helps certain groups of people maintain their level of immunity longer.

COVID-19 vaccinations are free at all HCPH designated sites and appointments are not required, although recommended. Go to vacstrac.hctx.net or call 832-927-8787 for scheduling.
