Vaccination against a COVID-19 infection remains the best way to protect you, your loved ones, and your community against severe illness and death from a COVID-19 infection. The Town of Weston Board of Health, public health staff, and the CDC all recommend that everyone eligible who lives, works, or learns in Weston seek vaccination. 

NEW: The CDC has endorsed the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that children 5 to 11 years old be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine. COVID-19 cases in children can result in hospitalizations, death, MIS-C (inflammatory syndromes) and long-term complications, such as “long COVID,” in which symptoms can linger for months. The pediatric vaccine has been shown to be at least 90% effective in preventing symptomatic infection in children. Distribution of pediatric vaccinations across the country began this week, with plans to scale up to full capacity starting the week of November 8, 2021. Vaccines will be available at thousands of pediatric healthcare provider offices, and pharmacies. The Town of Weston will not be providing pediatric vaccination.

In addition, some people are now eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shots:

If you received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna Vaccine and it has been 6 months or more since your second shot, you should seek a booster if you are:

Pregnancy Advisory - Updated on September 29, 2021

The CDC issued an urgent health advisory to increase COVID-19 vaccination among people who are pregnant, recently pregnant (including those who are lactating), who are trying to become pregnant now, or who might become pregnant in the future to prevent serious illness, deaths, and adverse pregnancy outcomes. 

The CDC health advisory strongly recommends COVID-19 vaccination either before or during pregnancy because the benefits of vaccination for both pregnant persons and their fetus or infant outweigh known or potential risks. Additional information on the benefits of vaccination and the safety of recommended vaccines for pregnant people is available and women are encourage to discuss this with their physicians.
