As of September 2023, FDA has authorized a new COVID-19 monovalent vaccine and CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 months and up get the updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against serious illness. The latest COVID-19 vaccine targets the most common circulating variants.

DCHD recommends that everyone in Delaware County stay up to date with vaccines. Staying up to date means getting all recommended COVID-19 vaccines including boosters when eligible. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have specific COVID-19 vaccine recommendations.

Please check for the most up-to-date vaccine appointment availability in the area.
