Pfizer Booster Available to Eligible Residents
Following CDC’s endorsement of a recommendation for a booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in several population groups, eligible L.A. County residents can begin receiving their booster doses at any of the hundreds of sites offering the Pfizer vaccine.
L.A. County residents eligible for a booster dose of Pfizer include the following groups of people who received the second of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine series at least 6 months ago and are either:
- People aged 65 years or older
- Residents of long-term care facilities
- People aged 18 to 64 years with underlying medical conditions
- People aged 18 to 64 years with high institutional or occupational risk, including healthcare workers, first responders, teachers and day care staff, grocery workers, and workers in homeless shelters or prisons, among others
Residents who received Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will need to wait until the FDA reviews the data and determines the need for and safety of boosters for these vaccines.
Those not yet vaccinated can make an appointment to get vaccinated by using the MyTurn system. Eligible residents who completed their two-dose Pfizer vaccine series at least six months ago can also make an appointment for their boosters by using the MyTurn system or by making an appointment at a pharmacy or clinic that offers Pfizer vaccinations.
Residents will need to bring proof they received two previous Pfizer doses, which for most people will be in the form of the white vaccination card, or a photo of the white card, or a digital record of your two doses. At many sites, residents may be asked to sign an attestation form indicating they meet the criteria to receive the Pfizer booster.
