The Wyoming Department of Health encourages everyone six months and older to get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against potentially serious COVID-19 illness in the coming months.

"We’ve seen the virus that causes COVID-19 continue to change and we’ve learned protection from COVID-19 vaccines is valuable, but does decline over time," said Dr. Alexia Harrist, State Health Officer and State Epidemiologist with the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH). "The newly available COVID-19 vaccine versions have been updated. Even if you’ve previously been vaccinated or ill with COVID-19 they can boost your protection from the more recent versions of the virus."

"Unfortunately, COVID-19 remains a concern, especially for those who are most vulnerable to its threat," Harrist said. "We have seen some indications of increased activity lately, but, thankfully, we are not facing the same situation as in earlier pandemic stages and that is largely due to vaccines and the protection they can offer from serious illness, hospitalization and death."

Harrist said an updated vaccine dose offers an extra layer of protection against severe disease, including for those who have been ill with COVID-19 or who have been vaccinated previously. "You should receive a dose of the updated vaccine if it has been at least two months since your last vaccination and at least three months since your symptoms began if you had COVID-19," she said.

While COVID-19 vaccine costs are no longer completely covered by federal programs, most people can get the cost for COVID vaccination covered by their health insurance plans. Moderna vaccine costs $135/dose. Sublette County Public Health can bill Medicare, BCBS, Cigna, and UMR for your vaccination--please call your insurance provider to verify your individual coverage.

People without health insurance or with health plans that do not cover COVID-19 vaccine fees can receive a low-cost vaccine from providers participating in a federal effort known as the "Bridge Access Program." Children without insurance can receive the COVID-19 vaccine from providers enrolled in the federal Vaccines for Children program. Sublette County Public Health is participating in these programs to provide vaccine to uninsured or underinsured individuals in our county.

Please call Sublette County Public Health to schedule your appointment at 307-367-2157.
