Research shows that people may not believe they are at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), even if they’re engaging in risky behavior. As a result, they don’t take steps to keep themselves healthy. To find out if you’re at risk for an STI, take this brief interactive quiz: https://www.cdc.gov/std/saw/pbyt/quiz.htm

After completing the quiz, access resources and tools that can help you to make a “game plan” in advance: https://www.cdc.gov/std/saw/pbyt/resources.htm

Make an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to find out what birth control method might be right for you! Schedule with the Family Planning Program by calling 1-833-220-3200.

In partnership with Shiawassee County Health Department, Mid-Michigan District Health Department serves teens and adults for their reproductive health needs in a four-county area, Montcalm, Gratiot, Clinton, and Shiawassee Counties. Our Nurse Practitioner will discuss all birth control options with you confidentially. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants are great for many individuals who want long-term birth control options. These devices do not contain any estrogen, making them an excellent choice for individuals who’ve had negative experiences with other types of hormonal birth control. Even better, both devices are easily removed. Teens through adults are welcome to schedule a free, confidential appointment with our Nurse Practitioner at 1-833-220-3200. #mmdhd #shiawasseecountyhealth #birthcontrol

Following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announces that all Michiganders ages 50 and up and moderately or severely immunocompromised individuals over age 12 may choose to receive a second booster vaccine.

Pfizer is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for those under age 18. COVID-19 booster doses may be given at the same time as other vaccines, including the flu vaccine. Four months after receipt of a first booster dose, the following are now authorized and individuals may choose to receive:

• A second booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to individuals 50 years of age and older.
• A second booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to moderately or severely immunocompromised individuals 12 years of age and older.
• A second booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to moderately or severely immunocompromised individuals 18 years of age and older.

"Vaccines remain our best strategy to minimize the risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19,” said Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian, MDHHS chief medical executive. "Those age 50 and older, or those who are immunocompromised and 12 years and older, may now receive an additional booster four months after their first booster. It is important that all Michiganders ages 5 and up get vaccinated if they aren’t already, and we urge Michiganders over the age of 12 to stay up-to-date on vaccines.”

When getting a booster dose, you’re encouraged to bring your COVID-19 vaccine card or immunization record to show the vaccine provider. Downloadable immunization records are accessible for adults 18 and older free of charge at the Michigan Immunization Portal. Visit Michigan.gov/MiImmsportal and upload a valid government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, state ID or passport. If you do not have records in the portal or are seeking records for a child under 18 years of age, contact a health care provider or local health department.

To date more than 6.6 million Michiganders ages 5 and up have gotten at least their first dose of one of the three safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines. Eligible Michiganders are encouraged to stay up to date on vaccinations, including booster doses that provide extra protection, including residents of long-term care facilities where outbreaks can spread quickly and extra protection is strongly recommended.

To schedule a primary or booster dose of the COVID vaccine, visit vaccines.gov.

Though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized second booster doses of two COVID-19 vaccines for older and immunocompromised individuals, that is only the first step in the approval process.

Please be patient during the approval process and we will share information when we are able to begin administering these second boosters.

Today, we authorized a second booster dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for older people and certain immunocompromised individuals. https://bit.ly/3NuxvY6

We previously authorized a single booster dose for certain immunocompromised individuals following completion of a three-dose primary vaccination series.

This action will now make a second booster dose of these vaccines available to other populations at higher risk for severe disease, hospitalization and death.

We amended the emergency use authorizations as follows:

➡️ A 2nd booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be administered to people 50+ years old at least 4 months after receipt of a 1st booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

➡️ A 2nd booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine may be administered to people 12+ years old with certain kinds of immunocompromise at least 4 months after receipt of a 1st booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

➡️ A 2nd booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine may be administered at least 4 months after the 1st booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine to people 18+ years old with the same certain kinds of immunocompromise.

Today’s action applies only to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, and the authorization of a single booster dose for other age groups with these vaccines remains unchanged.

We will continue to evaluate data and information as it becomes available when considering the potential use of a second booster dose in other age groups.
