Janssen/Johnson and Johnson Vaccine Update

On Wednesday, December 15, 2021 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Janssen/Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine with additional precautions related to a blood clotting disorder, Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), observed in a wide range of recipients. On Thursday, the ACIP met and recommended that "mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are preferred over the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 for all >18 years of age."

Because of this update, SEK Multi-County Health Department will no longer be offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as a COVID-19 option. If you have questions, please call our office. If you received a J&J primary dose and would like a booster, we will still be offering the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines as an option. Both of these can be used as a booster for any COVID-19 vaccine primary series that has been given. 


COVID-19 Case Investigation and Quarantine

Our offices are no longer investigating COVID-19 cases. If you have tested positive and have questions, you may call your local health department. If you would like answers on when you should return to work, school, etc. please call the COVID-19 hotline (866) 534-3463.

COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

Do I need to make an appointment to get the vaccine?

Yes. At this time, it is necessary to make an appointment to get vaccinated at SEKMCHD.


Is vaccination mandatory?

Public Health officials are not mandating vaccination at this time. Your employer may require you to be vaccinated.


How much does the vaccine cost?

There is no cost to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The federal government provides the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, no matter their immigration or health insurance status. No one can be denied a vaccine if they're unable to pay an admin fee.


Where can I get a COVID-19 vaccination?

COVID-19 vaccines are available through the health department, pharmacies and physician offices. You can also use VaccineFinder to find COVID-19 vaccines near you.


I already had COVID-19. Do I need to get the vaccine?

Yes, health experts recommend getting vaccinated whether or not you have already had COVID-19. At this time, experts are still learning how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible, but rare, that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again. If you've had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, talk to your doctor about when you should get vaccinated.


I want to get a specific vaccine. How do I do that?

Currently, three types of COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for use in the United States: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Different locations and providers will have one or more of the vaccines in stock. Use VaccineFinder to search for a nearby location with the type of vaccine you would like, or contact the provider directly. Note: Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for children ages 5-17 years.
