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.
