District 4 Public Health - COVID19

District 4 Public Health is fully complying to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. With updates and reports coming in daily, District 4 recommends residents to use the CDC’s resources to stay aware of the most current information.

The CDC provides education and guidance on how to protect yourself and what to do if you are sick. It also answers common questions for those wondering if you should get tested, are unsure of how to care for someone with symptoms, or in need of advice on adjusting your everyday life. All these things and more can be found here:

Treatment and Medications

COVID-19 Vaccine

District 4 health departments offer COVID-19 vaccines with no out-of-pocket costs to individuals. If a patient has insurance, the health department may bill the company for administrative costs related to the vaccine.

The CDC announced new simplified guidelines in April 2023 for getting COVID-19 vaccinations. It is now recommended that individuals ages 6 years and older receive only the updated bivalent vaccine moving forward, regardless of whether they received the primary vaccine series.

The bivalent vaccine offers better protection against the currently circulating strains of the virus. The original primary vaccines are no longer recommended for use in the U.S.

The CDC also recommends a second bivalent (mRNA) booster for people over the age of 65 and immunocompromised individuals. Under the new guidelines:

  • Seniors 65 years and older can now receive the updated booster four months after their first dose.
  • Those with weakened immune systems can get an additional bivalent booster two months after their previous bivalent dose. If they choose, additional doses may be administered at the discretion of their health care provider.

For young children, multiple doses continue to be recommended and will vary by age, vaccine, and previous vaccines received. Please consult with your county health department or medical provider for more information on your child’s COVID-19 vaccine schedule.

The CDC continues to monitor COVID-19 disease levels and vaccine effectiveness and will update its recommendations as needed.
