General Vaccine Information:


COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

We’re still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions in public places like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces until we know more.

People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) and two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine). 

If it has been less than two weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.

Testing Sites:  All state and county- run test sites are free and open to the public. 

Lee County Department of Health located at 3920 Michigan Avenue, Fort Myers, FL 33916
