Vaccine Information

The Craven County Health Department is currently vaccinating individuals 12 years of age and older.  

COVID-19 vaccinations are free. 

Individuals who are immunocompromised and received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines can now receive an additional dose to better protect themselves from COVID-19.  The additional dose should be given at least 28 days after completing the initial two-dose series. 

Based on CDC recommendations, immunocompromised people include those who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
