If you are 12 or older, you can be vaccinated at any of our free vaccination sites at no cost, or at a local vaccination provider such as a doctor's office or pharmacy. (A parent or guardian must accompany minors to their vaccination.)
COVID-19 vaccinations are provided to Mississippi residents only, or to out-of-state residents who work in Mississippi.
If you have had severe reactions from previous vaccines or injectable medications, please consult with your doctor or a private medical provider about vaccination, rather than visiting an MSDH vaccination site.
Vaccinations are widely available around the state at pharmacies, hospitals and private physicians' clinics. Eligible Mississippians can also be vaccinated at one of our free vaccination sites.
MSDH does not provide replacement vaccination cards, but our MyIR online service lets you view your immunization records, including records of COVID-19 vaccinations, and print them if needed. To get started, register with MyIR.
If you find errors in your vaccination record, contact the MSDH Immunization Office about corrections: 601-576-7751
An additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine can provide added protection if you have a medical condition that affects your immune system and are at high risk for developing more serious illness from COVID-19.
Qualifying conditions include recent cancer treatment, organ transplant, stem cell transplant, having a disease such as HIV which affects the immune system, or taking medication such as high-dose steroids.
You can schedule a booster dose at a county health department or through your doctor or regular health care provider.
Our documents below offer guidance to medical providers on third vaccine doses and how to become a vaccine provider and order COVID-19 vaccine.
