Vaccination Against COVID-19

This page has been automatically translated from English. MSDH has not reviewed this translation and is not responsible for any inaccuracies.

COVID-19 vaccinations are available from local pharmacies and healthcare providers, and at no cost from MSDH locations.

A current updated (bivalent) vaccination is recommended for everyone ages 6 and older.

Children younger then 6 should have had at least one dose of updated (bivalent) vaccine.

Vaccination is especially important for adults 65 and older, children and adults who have weakened immune systems, and anyone with underlying health problems.


MSDH's Adopt-a-School program connects COVID-19 vaccination providers with schools and school systems to lower the barrier to vaccinations for those 12 and older.

Free Vaccinations from MSDH

MSDH provides free vaccinations at county health departments and special community locations for anyone 6 months or older. (A parent or guardian must accompany minors to their vaccination.). No documentation or identification is required.

Please schedule a vaccination ahead of time at county health departments.

When you arrive, expect vaccination and related paperwork to take about 10 minutes. We also have a 15-minute observation period after vaccination.

Call 855-767-0170 to schedule a vaccination.

Local Vaccination Providers

Many hospitals, private healthcare providers and pharmacies have also received COVID-19 vaccine. Contact a provider directly to find out about cost and the availability of appointments.
