  • Pediatric Vaccine Information:

    Moderna Pediatric vaccines are available for children 6 months and older at the Public Health office. Pfizer is available for children 5 years and older.

    • Parent or Legal Guardian must be present at the time of appointment to provide consent.
    • If you have questions about your child receiving the vaccine, please consult with your primary care provider prior to making an appointment.

    • The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is administered as a primary series of two doses, one month apart. The vaccine is also authorized to provide a third primary series dose at least one month following the second dose for individuals in this age group who have been determined to have certain kinds of immunocompromise. 
    • The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine is administered as a primary series of three doses in which the initial two doses are administered three weeks apart followed by a third dose administered at least eight weeks after the second dose.

    Vaccine Booster Information:

    The following individuals are eligible to schedule an appointment:

    • Those who are 5 years or older and at least 5 months past completion of their Pfizer vaccine series; or
    • Those who are 18 years or older and at least 5 months past completion of their Moderna vaccine series; or
    • Those who are 18 years or older and at least 2 months past receiving their single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
    • Those who are 50 years and older and certain immunocompromised individuals can now get a second booster dose of an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months after receiving their initial booster dose.

    You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you would like to receive as a booster shot when you register for your appointment. Note: Those who are 5-17 years of age are only authorized to receive a Pfizer booster vaccine at this time. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. The CDC's recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

    NOTE: The Washington State Department of Health is recommending people 18 and older choose to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) instead of the single-shot Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine. This update follows guidance and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup. Individuals who wish to receive the J&J vaccine are encouraged to reach out to their health care provider to discuss their options.
