L.A. County residents eligible for a booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine include those who received the second of the two-dose vaccine series at least 6 months ago and are either:
- 65 years and older
- Age 18 and older who live in long-term care settings
- Age 18 and older who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18 and older who work or live in high-risk settings
For people who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for everyone who was vaccinated two or more months ago.
All eligible individuals are allowed to choose a different brand from their original vaccine as a booster.
Residents can make an appointment for their booster by using MyTurn.CA.gov or the County website at VaccinateLACounty.com and for more information about booster shots. Additionally, many pharmacies and clinics countywide may be accepting appointments through their own systems.
Residents should bring proof of their primary vaccine series, such as the white vaccination card, a photo of the white vaccination card, or a digital record. At many sites, residents may be asked to sign an attestation form indicating they meet the criteria to receive the booster if they don’t have proof of vaccination.
If you need a ride to get your vaccination, you can reach out to the L.A. County Department of Public Health call center at 1-833-540-0473 and you will be connected to free transportation.
