Vaccination Against COVID-19


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

A current updated (2023-2024 formula) vaccination is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older.

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

Free Vaccinations from MSDH

The latest 2023-2024 formula COVID-19 vaccinations are available at county health departments for qualifying individuals aged 6 months and older. (A parent or guardian must accompany minors to their vaccination.). No documentation or identification is required.

MSDH currently provides free vaccinations only for those who lack insurance to cover the cost of vaccination from other providers.

If You Have Insurance

If you have insurance that covers the cost of COVID-19 vaccination:

  • Check with your healthcare provider or a pharmacy for COVID-19 vaccination.
  • You can locate a private provider near you offering updated COVID-19 vaccinations at www.vaccines.gov

If You Do Not Have Insurance

If you lack insurance coverage for COVID-19 vaccination, or are uninsured, you can schedule an appointment for free vaccination at an MSDH location.
