West Virginians ages 6 months and older are recommended to stay up-to-date with updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccination. At this time a 2023-2024 updated COVID-19 shot is recommended for most people ages 5 years and older. Those ages 6 months through 4 years of age have more specific recommendations. People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised may need additional shots for updated protection. COVID-19 vaccination is the best way to protect against severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19.
