Third doses of COVID-19 vaccine are currently available only for people who have significantly compromised immune systems, such as those receiving cancer treatments or organ transplants. New data show that a third Moderna or Pfizer vaccine dose helps to increase vaccine effectiveness for this group.

At this time, Public Health does not offer or recommend third doses for other groups. The FDA and CDC's expert panel will be evaluating the effectiveness and safety of a booster shot for other groups, and Public Health expects to receive further guidance in the coming weeks.

COVID-19 vaccine is always free. Everyone ages 12 and older can get a vaccine. Ages 12-17 can get Pfizer ONLY, ages 18+ can get Pfizer, Moderna or J&J. Learn more about vaccination for youth at

No appointment needed: most pharmacies, clinics, and Public Health centers now offer drop-in COVID-19 vaccination. Click the Vaccine Locator button or check the King County partnership sites listed below for site schedules, drop-in options, and available vaccine types.

Flyer: In-home vaccination FAQ (PDF)

You will need to bring:

  • Identification with date of birth: state, tribe, or federal-issued ID. A billing or bank statement with your name and address can also be used.

  • Wear short sleeves or loose-fitting sleeves that are easy to roll up so that you can get vaccinated in your upper arm.

  • Authorized adult consent: If you are younger than 18 years old, you may need consent from an authorized adult to get the vaccine. You can consent for yourself if you are emancipated, married to an adult, or the vaccine site determines you are a mature minor. Not all vaccine sites are able to make mature minor determinations. More information for children and teens, including authorized adult definitions, is included below. If an authorized adult will not attend the vaccine appointment with you, check with your vaccine provider about requirements for showing proof of authorized adult consent or legal emancipation.

Flyer: Public Health recommendations: after COVID-19 vaccination (PDF)

Schedule a second dose

If you are receiving a 2-dose vaccine, make an appointment for the second dose of the vaccine at your vaccination appointment after you receive your first dose. You should get your second dose 21 days (Pfizer-BioNTech) or 28 days (Moderna) after the first dose. The second dose will provide full protection from the virus.

You do not need a second dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine – one dose offers full protection.

Sign up for V-safe

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created a tool, V-safe, to monitor vaccine safety. V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you get a COVID-19 vaccine. You can can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. CDC may follow up with you to get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose, if needed.

What to do about side effects

If you experience a severe allergic reaction, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest hospital. Call your healthcare provider if you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away.

Report vaccine side effects to FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Call the VAERS number at 1-800-822-7967 or report online at Include the name of the vaccine you received in the first line of box #18 in the report form.

Continue COVID-19 precautions

Until you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after your final dose), it’s important to protect others. Continue to wear masks, limit indoor activities outside of the home, avoid crowded indoor spaces, keep contact with others brief and distanced, improve ventilation indoors, and wash your hands frequently.

The good news is that once you’re fully vaccinated, you can start doing many things again that stopped because of the pandemic.

People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines OR
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson's vaccine

If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.

Fully vaccinated people should be aware of the following:

  • The Washington state masking order requires everyone to wear masks in some settings, including schools and childcare, healthcare, homeless service sites, correctional facilities and on public transportation.
  • Even vaccinated people should wear a mask in indoor public places and crowded outdoor settings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • If you choose to travel (domestically or internationally), you still need to follow CDC travel requirements.
  • Watch for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you have been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, get tested and stay home and away from others.
  • If you have a known exposure to someone with COVID-19, get tested 3 or more days after exposure, and socially distance and monitor for symptoms for 2 weeks. You probably don’t need to quarantine, unless you have symptoms. Read our isolation and quarantine guidance for more information.
  • Follow guidance at your workplace. Employers and organizations may request or require proof of vaccination to attend events or return to work. Reasonable accommodations are required for those with disabilities or for other reasons someone can't be vaccinated.
  • Improving indoor air quality, through better ventilation and filtration, will be crucial to protecting us all from COVID-19. More information available on our Improving Indoor Air page.

Even vaccinated people may choose to continue wearing masks in public places. Some vaccinated people may choose to continue wearing a mask if they are at increased risk for severe infection, have an underlying health condition, or are in close contact with someone at increased risk. Others may choose to continue to wear a mask to support mask-wearing by unvaccinated people or because they feel more comfortable doing so. Some people also wear masks to protect themselves from other respiratory illnesses or allergens.

We are still learning how well vaccines prevent the spread of COVID-19 and updates are ongoing. Check out the CDC's website for the latest guidance for people fully vaccinated.

Who is eligible?

Everyone age 12 years and older is currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are not authorized for children younger than 12 years old. Clinical trials are in process for young children.
