COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The Jefferson County Health Department and many pharmacies and some medical practices are administering COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccination is one of the important ways to protect yourself and the community from COVID-19 infection. Fewer people who have been vaccinated develop COVID-19 and vaccinated people who do get an infection usually have much less likely severe illness than unvaccinated people. The vaccines are available at no cost to the individual.
