COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility and General Information
If you are 5 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. Mississippians can also be vaccinated at any county health department.
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.
Mississippi Certificates of COVID-19 Vaccination are also available through MyIR.
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, or if immunity from your initial vaccination has decreased over time.
All adults 18 and older are eligible for booster doses of vaccine to help improve immunity in case your vaccination effectiveness has decreased over time.
