COVID-19 Vaccine Information

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO GET A VACCINE?

NOTE:  You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you get all recommended doses in your primary series of COVID-19 vaccines.


To be up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, you will need to be fully vaccinated and get all boosters doses recommended for you when eligible.

1 Booster recommended for:
2 Boosters recommended for:

Get your booster dose:
  • At least 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
  • At least 5 months after your second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna primary vaccine series.
  • Adults ages 50 years and older
  • People ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised
  • People who got 2 doses (1 primary dose and 1 booster) of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine

  • Get your second booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna 4 months after your first booster dose. 

GUIDANCE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE MODERATELY TO SEVERLY IMMUNOCOMPROMISED

If you are moderately to severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system), you are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness and death. Your immune response to COVID-19 vaccination may not be as strong as in people who are not immunocompromised. As with vaccines for other diseases, you are protected best when you stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines. That means you should get all the COVID-19 vaccine and booster doses recommended for you, when eligible. Click here for additional information.

WHY DO WE NEED A VACCINE?

Updates from the CDC show that vaccines are working in the real world. Available evidence suggests the currently approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalization and death for a variety of strains.

WHAT VACCINES ARE AVAILABLE?

Three COVID-19 vaccines are used in the United States to prevent COVID-19. Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna are COVID-19 mRNA vaccines and are preferred. You may get Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine in some situations. Click here for more information.


VACCINATION CARD

Your vaccination card has information on when and where you received your vaccine as well as other helpful information related to the COVID-19 vaccine. Keep your card in a safe place and be sure to bring your card with when receiving additional COVID-19 vaccine doses (if needed). You may also want to take a picture of your card or make a photo copy if able.

  • You may also visit the Wisconsin Immunization Registry for an electronic version.
  • When taking pictures or posting selfies about getting your COVID-19 vaccine, do not post photos of your vaccination card online so your health information is protected.
  • Do not laminate your vaccination card.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER GETTING THE VACCINE?
