Please talk with your child's pediatrician if you have any questions about your child's eligibility. Due to social distancing requirements, one parent/guardian is allowed per child. Please dress your child appropriately so that the vaccinator has easy access to their arm. Please note, that we will not restrain your child during the vaccination process.
Many pediatricians and pharmacies in the county are also offering the 5-11 COVID vaccine. Please reach out to your child's pediatrician to see if they have the 5-11 COVID vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine be given to people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised. This recommendation has been approved for Pfizer vaccine AND Moderna vaccine and must be administered no earlier than 28 days after a second dose. The third dose must be from the same manufacturer as the first two doses. Please talk with your medical provider if you have any questions about your eligibility.
For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series.
For individuals who received a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, boosters shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. You may get the same vaccine type that you originally received or you can get a different vaccine type for your booster.
Please talk with your medical provider if you have any questions about your eligibility.
A note or prescription is not needed to get a third dose or booster shot. Please bring your vaccine card to your third dose or booster shot appointment.
