It must be at least 6 months since a person completed their initial series of Pfizer vaccine


The following people SHOULD get a booster:

    • People 65 year of age and older
    • Residents in long-term care settings
    • People aged 50-64 with underlying medical conditions (examples of these medical conditions include cancer, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, chronic lung disease, dementia, Down syndrome, heart conditions, overweight and obesity)


The following people MAY get a booster:

    • People aged 18-49 with underlying medical conditions
    • People aged 18-64 who are at increased risk due to where they work or live (such as institutional settings


Individuals can self-report that they are eligible under these recommendations.

Move Your Way CampaignSM

Siouxland District Health Department has been selected as one of eight communities from across the nation, to pilot the Move Your Way Campaign SM over the next nine months. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created the Move Your Way campaign to promote the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. It aims to help people understand how much physical activity they need to be healthy and how to fit it into their daily lives.

The campaign has videos, fact sheets, posters, and interactive tools in English and Spanish that are free and easy to use and distribute. These materials promote friendly, practical key messages, like “lots of things count as physical activity” and “it all adds up!”
