The booster vaccine can be obtained by anyone 18 and older at least six months from the date of their second mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine or at least two months from the date of their Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Additionally, the Rockwood CVC offers first, second, and additional primary COVID-19 vaccines at no cost to the public. The Moderna vaccine and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson are available for anyone 18 and older. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available for anyone 5 and older. A parent or guardian must accompany anyone under 18.

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are strongly encouraged, especially for children, to reduce wait times. Individuals with an appointment should plan to arrive no earlier than 20 minutes prior to the appointment time.
This week the clinic will be open Tuesday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday, November 24 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The clinic will be closed the rest of the week for the Thanksgiving holiday. On Monday, November 29, the CVC will return to normal hours – Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Individuals who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster dose may choose which vaccine product they would like to receive as a booster. For those individuals that choose a different product than their primary series, VDH urges you to consult with your doctor or healthcare provider who can assist you in making the best decision for your own situation.
If you are coming for your second, third or booster dose, please bring your vaccine card to confirm the date and type of vaccine you received in previous doses.
