What criteria do I need to meet to get a vaccine?

Anyone 6 months and older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District Clinics.

  • Only the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are approved for children 6 months and older
  • You must be 12 and older to register to receive the Novavax vaccine

Do I need to schedule my second dose?

Yes. When you receive your first dose at the Health District clinics, you will be given a COVID-19 Vaccination Card. Please refer to this card for the recommended date and brand for your next dose. Please use this form to schedule your second dose appointment. Please bring your vaccination card and picture ID with you to your appointment.

When should I receive my second dose appointment?

You may receive your second Pfizer dose three weeks after your first dose and your second Moderna dose 4 weeks after your first dose.

Can you get sick with COVID-19 while waiting on the second dose of the vaccine?

It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity after vaccination. That means it’s possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and get sick. This is because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection. For more information, visit the CDC website's vaccine benefits page.

Can I receive a booster dose of the vaccine?

Pfizer Bivalent Boosters are available for ages 5 and older & Moderna Bivalent Boosters are available for ages 6 months and older, 2 months after they have completed their primary series.

Bivalent Booster Vaccines: Until now, COVID-19 vaccines have targeted the original COVID-19 strain. Each COVID-19 variant has made the vaccine a little less effective. The NEW Bivalent booster vaccine protects against the original strain as well as the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants. 

Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. If you have lost your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card or don’t have a copy, contact your vaccination provider directly to access your vaccination record. Additional information about your COVID-19 vaccine record can be found here.
