San Mateo County Health is offering pediatric COVID-19 vaccines at eight sites throughout the county during the month of January. Free and open to the public, these clinics will offer the Pfizer vaccine to children aged 5-11. Boosters and vaccines for other ages will not be available.
Advance appointments are encouraged and may be scheduled through MyTurn, but families may also come without appointments. Appointments for second doses will be scheduled automatically at the same location three weeks after the first dose.
Dates, locations, and times are listed below. The information is subject to change, so residents should check here to see the most up-to-date information.
County Health encourages families to get children vaccinated as soon as possible through pediatric care providers, pharmacies, or at the clinics below. Vaccines prevent serious illness, save lives, and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Vaccinating children can:
- protect them from getting sick, particularly children with underlying medical conditions who are more at risk for severe illness
- help keep them in school
- participate safely in group activities like sports and playdates
- protect family members, including siblings not eligible for vaccination and those at increased risk of getting sick if infected
COVID-19 vaccines have been under some of the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. Clinical trials with thousands of children have shown that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
“Vaccines are very effective in preventing children from getting very sick with the Delta and Omicron variants,” said Deputy County Health Officer Dr. Curtis Chan. “Vaccinated children are less likely to get infected and spread the disease to other family members, including younger siblings and grandparents.”
