COVID-19 Community Levels
The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels is a new risk-based set of guidelines that can be used to guide behavior during times of low, medium, and high transmission in the community. Recommendations for those who are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines and for those who are at higher risk can be found on the CDC website. The metrics used to determine whether Hays County is currently at low, medium, or high risk are found on our dashboard.
A second booster (Pfizer or Moderna) is now authorized by the FDA for those who are over 50 years of age or are immunocompromised as long as it has been more than four months since receiving the last booster. It is okay to mix vaccine boosters (i.e., you do not need to get the same brand as your original shots). There is some evidence that mixing vaccines may actually enhance the immune response and offer better protection. See additional info here and here.
