Last week, the Centers for Disease Control recommended a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in certain populations and recommended a booster dose for those in high-risk occupational and institutional settings.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine, according to the following guidelines:
Boosters are available only to individuals 18 and older who have received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago. Federal guidance for recipients of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines has not yet been issued.
Appointments for the Event Center booster clinic, and for other vaccination opportunities in the Bay Area, may be scheduled through MyTurn. For the Event Center booster clinics, appointments are encouraged but not required. Drive-up participants should bring their previous vaccination documentation. Those without documentation may self-attest to having received a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago and meeting the other qualifications outlined by the FDA and CDC.
San Mateo County Health will be holding drive-thru booster clinics at the San Mateo County Event Center on the following dates and times:
