COVID Additional Dose Recommended For Those 65 And Older

CDC and ACIP now recommend that all persons aged ≥65 years receive one additional dose of any updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine – the same vaccine that they might have received fall 2023.

Anyone with an immune system compromising illness and adults aged ≥65 years should receive an additional dose of the updated (2023–2024 Formula) COVID-19 vaccine to enhance their immunity and decrease the risk for severe COVID-19–associated illness. SARS-CoV-2 virus circulates throughout the year, and adults aged ≥65 years all persons with chronic immune compromise have increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

VCHD is carrying only a limited supply of COVID vaccine at this time. Please call ahead at 406-228-6261 to schedule.
