COVID-19 Vaccines

Additional Vaccine Doses

The CDC recently updated their recommendations for additional booster shots. A booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is recommended for children ages 5-11 if at least five months have passed since the primary series of shots.

Find information from the CDC about staying up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccines.

What to Expect After Your Vaccine

The vaccines may cause side effects in some people, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or mild fever. These reactions mean the vaccine is working to help teach your body how to fight COVID-19 if you are exposed. For most people, these side effects will last no longer than a day or two. Having these side effects does not mean that you have COVID-19.

COVID-19 Vaccines are Free

There is no charge for COVID-19 vaccinations at the health department. 

Vaccine Cards

You will receive a vaccination card when you get your first dose. Please bring your card with you when you receive additional doses.

If your vaccine record card is lost or damaged, please contact us at [email protected] to ask for a new card. This service is only available for people who got their vaccine doses from the Riley County Health Department. There is a $5.00 service charge for the replacement.

If you received your vaccine at a different location, please contact them to request a replacement.
