Take your BEST SHOT! Protect yourself and your loved ones. Get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Moderately and severely immunocompromised people who qualify for an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna & Pfizer) can receive it anywhere vaccines are offered, including Houston Health Department vaccination sites. A list of qualifying conditions can be found on CDC’s website.

The CDC expects additional data in the next few weeks to determine when people who received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine need an additional dose.


Federal health officials plan to begin offering COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to all Americans this fall, pending final FDA evaluation and formal recommendations from CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). 

Getting vaccinated prevents serious illness, hospitalization, and death; it also helps reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • While rare, breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people get COVID-19 are expected but fully vaccinated people are much less likely to get seriously sick or die. 
  • Delta is different than past versions of the virus because it is much more contagious and people with breakthrough infections may spread it.
  • Wearing a mask in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status, helps protect you and everyone close to you.
Getting vaccinated is FREE and does not require ID, proof of residency, citizenship, or insurance. People age 12 and older are currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

Walk-ins are welcome and appointments available. Vaccination is FREE!

  • Pfizer’s vaccine has full FDA approval for people age 16 and older and emergency authorization for people ages 12-15.
  • Vaccines are cleared for Emergency Use Authorization after rigorous review by FDA based on scientific evidence about safety and effectiveness gathered through large clinical trials.
  • People with diverse races and ethnicities tested the vaccine in large clinical trials to prove they are safe and highly effective.
  • None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.
  • The vaccines do not alter DNA and do not cause you to become magnetic.
  • COVID-19 vaccines were developed using science that has been around for decades.
  • Side effects may include fatigue, headache, fever, chills, nausea, muscle pain and joint pain. These side effects show that the vaccine is working and resolve within a day or two.
