COVID-19 Updates and Announcements

Please follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information. 

Moderna COVID-19 Additional Doses are now available at our offices for those individuals who are immunocompromised. A COVID-19 BOOSTER Dose is not available yet. When it is, we will update our website and notify the public via newspaper, radio, and Facebook.

Due to our office being partially closed for COVID-19 vaccine clinics through the weeks and months ahead, we will be posting the active case count weekly on Mondays. Thank you for your understanding regarding vaccine prioritizations. 

Please call your local health department if you would like a further breakdown of cases and/or vaccinations.

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.

How long after I get my vaccine do I need to wear my mask?

If you're fully vaccinated you can start to safely resume many activities. However, with the more contagious Delta variant circulating across the United States, health experts are encouraging all people to wear a mask indoors in public if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission. This will maximize protection against the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others.

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

Every vaccine that is recommended by FDA and CDC has been thoroughly tested and found to be effective and safe. 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 12-17 years.
