Mississippians Ages 12 and Older Are Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccination
From the Mississippi State Department of Health: If you are 12 or older, you can be vaccinated at any of the Mississippi Department of Health drive-through or walk-in sites at no cost, or at a local vaccination provider such as a doctor's office or pharmacy. (A parent or guardian must accompany minors to their vaccination.)
COVID-19 vaccinations are provided to Mississippi residents only, or to out-of-state residents who work in Mississippi.
If you have had severe reactions from previous vaccines or injectable medications, please consult with your doctor or a private medical provider about vaccination, rather than visiting an MSDH drive-through site.
Who Should Be Vaccinated:
*Persons aged 12 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine, and those 18 and over can receive the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
*Pregnant women, lactating women and those who are immunocompromised may take the vaccine; however, consultation with your healthcare provider is recommended.
*You can be vaccinated if you have tested positive for COVID-19 if you wait until your isolation period is over and your symptoms have significantly improved.
