12 and over boosters

Remember these basic tips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19  

  • Get vaccinated – and boosted when you are eligible Find your vaccine location here
  • Wear a mask indoors. Health experts advise wearing a medical-grade mask, instead of a cloth mask which is less effective at blocking transmission of the omicron variant. 
  • Keep at least six feet distance from others. 
  • Wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer
  • Stay home if you are sick

Why Get Your Child Vaccinated 

The vaccine is safe and effective at protecting young children from severe complications from COVID-19. While children are less likely than adults to get severely ill from COVID-19, more than 2,000 Ohio children under 18 have been hospitalized with COVID-19, and 15 have died. Vaccinating your child also helps prevent them from becoming sick from COVID-19 and spreading it to vulnerable family members and the community. Child doses are available at all Columbus Public Health vaccine clinics, as well as pharmacies, doctor's offices and other nearby medical facilities. Find your vaccine location here.
