Pierce County COVID-19 data update: Vaccinations

Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department announcement.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now includes second booster doses for people 50 and older in its definition of who’s up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccines. We’ve made this change on our dashboard as well.

As of today, 24.8% of Pierce County residents are up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccination. If you’re 50 or older and haven’t gotten your second booster yet, you can find your dose today at tpchd.org/vaxtothefuture.

People who are under 50 and immune compromised should also get a second booster dose 4 months after getting their first booster.
