Help San Mateo County plan for booster doses with this two-minute survey. Federal agencies are developing plans for a third or “booster” dose of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for individuals eight months after their second dose, beginning as early as September 20, 2021. While this plan is still awaiting Food and Drug Administration approval, San Mateo County is already preparing for mass vaccination clinics and would like your thoughts on how to do this best.
Please help San Mateo County plan for booster doses with this two-minute survey.
This survey is meant to provide a better understanding of resident interest in receiving a booster or third dose of Pfizer or Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. You will need to schedule an appointment through a separate pathway once booster vaccinations begin in late September.
All survey results are anonymous.
San Mateo County Health strongly recommends receiving vaccination to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. If you would like to learn more about vaccination options available through San Mateo County Health, please email San Mateo County Health visit the San Mateo County Health website.

This year, International Walk to School Day is October 6, 2021. Although students are back on campus, this fall may still look different. The Safe Routes to School program encourages participation throughout the month of October in a way that feels more appropriate and comfortable for each school and family, whether it is by taking a walk to school or at home.
