COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Putnam County Health Department is currently administering Moderna and Pfizer 2023-2024 seasonal COVID-19 vaccinations for community members of all ages. Please call 304.757.2541 to schedule in advance.

Getting the seasonal COVID-19 vaccine will:

  • Provide stronger protection against the strains currently circulating in our communities
  • Make it less likely that you will get really sick, need to go to the hospital, or die, even if you do test positive for the virus
  • Reduce your risk of long COVID (most prevalent in young adults)

If you’re not sure when you’re due for your next vaccine dose, you can use the DHHR’s COVID-19 vaccine calculator tool to determine your eligibility.
