Polk County Public Health is encouraging everyone age 5 and older to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
If you would like to start your vaccination series or receive a booster, contact your healthcare clinic, local pharmacy, or schedule an appointment with Polk County Public Health below. If you would like to get your child (ages 5-11) vaccinated, contact your healthcare clinic or local pharmacy to schedule an appointment.
All individuals 12 years and older are eligible to receive
a single booster shot.
- All individuals 12 years and older should get a booster shot 5 months after their second dose.
- All adults 18 years and older should get a booster shot 5 months after their second dose.
- Janssen (Johnson and Johnson):
- All adults 18 years and older should get a booster shot with a mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) 2 months after their single dose.
Guidance now allows “mixing and matching” COVID-19 vaccine boosters, meaning individuals can get any of the three currently authorized or approved vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson) regardless of what product they received for their initial series.
