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. 

CDC Statement on the Omicron Variant of COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is strengthening its recommendation on booster doses for individuals who are 18 years and older. Everyone ages 18 and older should get a booster shot either when 6 months have passed since their initial Pfizer or Moderna series, or 2 months after their initial J&J vaccine.

The recent emergence of the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19. Early data suggests increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant, and scientists in the United States and around the world are urgently examining vaccine effectiveness related to this variant. The CDC strongly encourages the 47 million adults who are not yet vaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible and to vaccinate the children and teens in their families as well because strong immunity will likely prevent serious illness. Anyone feeling sick should get a COVID-19 test

We know what it takes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. CDC recommends people follow prevention strategies such as wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission, washing their hands frequently, and physically distancing from others. 

Travelers to the U.S. should continue to follow CDC recommendations for traveling

Pregnancy Advisory - Updated on September 29, 2021

The CDC 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 encouraged to discuss this with their physicians.

Symptom Reminder
