download

A THIRD dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for people who are immunocompromised at all major pharmacies and clinics. Eligible individuals can go to their primary care provider or to one of APH’s vaccine sites to receive their third dose. We encourage the public to talk to their physician about receiving a third dose. Boosters are expected to be available September 20 for those who were fully vaccinated 8 months ago. Please help with the following booster messaging:

  1. Vaccine, including boosters, are widely available at your local clinics and pharmacies. Visit vaccine.gov to find the provider closest to you.
  2. Austin Public Health (APH) will focus efforts on the ~250K people in the county who are eligible for the vaccine but are still unvaccinated. When it is time to get your booster, please bring an unvaccinated loved one with you to get their shot. 
  3. This is also a good time to schedule your flu shot.
