The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department recommends all eligible members of the public who live or work in Santa Clara County receive a COVID-19 booster shot.
Pediatric boosters are available for children 5 - 11 years old, 5 months following a second dose of Pfizer. Boosters are not currently recommended for children under 12 who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
COVID-19 bivalent boosters are now approved for use as a single booster dose at least 2 months following the completion of primary vaccination or after receiving the most recent authorized booster dose. Moderna COVID-19 bivalent boosters are approved for individuals 18 years and older, and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent boosters are approved for individuals 12 years and older.
Immunocompromised individuals 12 years of age and older who completed their primary series with any authorized COVID-19 vaccine are eligible for an age-appropriate bivalent COVID-19 booster dose at least 2 months after completion of the primary series. Additionally, for immunocompromised individuals who already received a first or second monovalent booster dose with any authorized COVID-19 vaccine, the bivalent booster dose may be administered at least 2 months after the last monovalent booster dose.
County clinics are taking appointments and many locations readily accept drop-in patients for booster doses. Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax vaccines are all available within the County. Additionally, many doctor offices and pharmacies provide COVID-19 boosters. Talk to your doctor today about your eligibility to receive a single dose COVID-19 bivalent booster.
Vaccinations through the County are no-cost to the public, insurance is not required, and there are no immigration requirements.
