Fundamental steps to help control the spread of COVID-19 in Mississippi.


If you test positive for COVID-19 and may be at higher risk for severe illness, ask your doctor about treatment to prevent serious illness and hospitalization.

COVID-19 Prevention


Vaccinations against COVID-19 are widely available from MSDH county health departments as well as from local healthcare providers and pharmacies.

Like seasonal flu vaccines, COVID-19 vaccines are reformulated from time to time to match the currently circulating strains of COVID-19. Staying up to date with the most recent vaccine helps ensure maximum protection.


COVID-19 testing is widely available from local healthcare providers. We offer free testing at sites around the state.
