Millions of Americans now can get COVID-19 booster shots.

Millions of people across the U.S. now may get COVID-19 booster vaccine doses after leaders of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorized additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for a vast swath of U.S. adults.

Who should get booster shots?

The new guidance recommends COVID-19 booster shots for all adults ages 65 and older and authorizes boosters for many others ages 18 and older including health care workers, teachers and people who live or work in high-risk settings like homeless shelters or prisons. Individuals who are at high risk for severe illness if they get COVID-19 — people who are obese, pregnant or suffer from diabetes — also may choose to get booster vaccine doses.

The pandemic has brought serious challenges to our community, often worsening existing issues. As we begin to shift from response to recovery, we know we cannot return to the pre-pandemic status quo, and must focus on a recovery that benefits all.  

The City of Fort Collins is working to create a long-term Recovery Plan. As we develop the Recovery Plan, we want to hear your ideas about what a vibrant and resilient recovery looks like for our community and what priorities we should focus on as we work to build back stronger. 

Whether you have a one minute, 5 minutes or more than an hour, we want to hear from you.
