The Division of Public Health offers the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for children and adults. It is also providing the new Novavax adjuvanted vaccine for adults 18 years and older, including those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised. The two-dose primary vaccine is a more traditional vaccine that has been used for decades to treat diseases such as hepatitis B, shingles and human papillomavirus. The vaccine presents a specific portion of the virus which the body generates immunity against. It is not yet available as a booster.
