The CDC recommends the updated COVID-19 for everyone 6 months and older once they become available. Metro Health will offer the new COVID-19 vaccine during Fall 2023. This vaccine is designed to target the latest COVID-19 omicron variants.

Once the vaccine becomes available, people without health insurance or whose health insurance does not cover the vaccine will be able to get the new vaccine at a Metro Health pop-up clinic at no cost. For those with insurance, please check with your provider to make sure the vaccine is covered and available.

The vaccines have been proven to reduce the risk of serious COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and even death. The CDC explains that the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination continue to outweigh any potential risks.

Metro Health continues to recommend people get tested and stay home if they are having symptoms, and if you are having symptoms, please wear a mask among others.

For any questions about vaccines, please speak with your doctor or call Metro Health’s Immunization Clinic at 210-207-8894 or visit our website.
