Second boosters now available through Austin Public Health

Friday, April 1, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin Public Health is now administering additional Covid boosters for some Austinites. If it has been at least four months since the first booster, a second booster dose is available for adults 50 years or older and for certain immunocompromised individuals. “Vaccines are safe, effective and FREE. I encourage everyone who is a part of this newly eligible group to get up to date with their Covid-19 vaccines as soon as possible,” Austin Public Health Director Adrienne Sturrup said in a statement to the press. “Boosters are available at all Austin Public Health vaccination sites, as well as your doctor’s office and pharmacy.” According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, almost 73 percent of the eligible population in Travis County is now fully vaccinated against Covid. Find more information about qualifying for boosters and how to obtain a booster through Austin Public Health on the city’s website or by calling 311.
