What Can You Do?
In general, the older you are, the more health conditions you have, and the more severe the conditions, the more important it is to take preventive measures against COVID-19 such as vaccination, wearing a mask, social distancing, and practicing hand hygiene. Please contact your state, tribal, local, or territorial health department for more information on COVID-19 vaccination in your area.
People at higher risk, in Tallahassee and beyond, should work with their healthcare providers to guide their management of these conditions. The best protection is to get vaccinated as soon as possible, and that also means getting a booster shot if recommended.
