- COVID-19 Information
COVID-19 is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild to moderate, like the common cold, but it can be more severe in older adults and people with chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, immune system disorders, etc.
Key times to get tested: If you have symptoms, test immediately. If you were exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms, wait at least 5 full days after your exposure before testing. If you test too early, you may be more likely to get an inaccurate result. If you are in certain high-risk settings, you may need to test as part of a screening testing program. Consider testing before contact with someone at high risk for severe COVID-19, especially if you are in an area with a medium or high COVID-19 Community Level.
Before you throw out "expired" tests: check to see if your COVID-19 tests' expiration dates have been extended.

COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying. As with other vaccine-preventable diseases, you are protected best from COVID-19 when you stay up to date with the recommended vaccinations, including recommended boosters.
- Updated (bivalent) Pfizer or Moderna boosters are a single dose vaccine available and recommended for individuals age 6 months and older at least two months after their previous COVID-19 vaccination.
- Children ages 6 months through 5 years who previously completed a Moderna primary series are eligible to receive a Moderna bivalent booster 2 months after their final primary series dose.
- Children ages 6 months through 4 years who are currently completing a Pfizer primary series will receive a Pfizer bivalent vaccine as their third primary dose.
- The updated (bivalent) booster provides increased protection against Omicron variants.
- Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you have recovered from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
- People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.
- COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest COVID-19 data.
The Burlington County Health Department, in partnership with Mobile Medical Services and Technology (MMST), is offering COVID-19 vaccinations to Burlington County residents 6 months and older.
