Getting your vaccine is fast, easy and free. COVID-19 vaccines are available to everyone 12 and older

The Pfizer vaccine received full authorization for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people 16 years old and older on August 23, 2021. The vaccine is still available under emergency use authorization for people ages 12-15. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been given emergency use authorization for people 18 years old and older. A parent or guardian of minors between 12–17 years of age must provide verbal consent to PeaceHealth before vaccination. This can be done in person at the time of the vaccination or over the phone before the appointment. Minors who are legally emancipated may provide their own consent.

booster shot is recommended for individuals who completed the two-dose Pfizer regimen at least six months ago and who meet one or more of the guidelines below:

PeaceHealth is offering booster shots to those who are eligible and completed the Pfizer regimen at one of our locations. Please see below for details on how to schedule an appointment. Vaccines and boosters are also available at many pharmacies and drug stores. You can find locations by zip code at  www.vaccines.gov.

Please speak with your primary care physician if you have questions about the Pfizer booster or are unsure if you meet the booster criteria. More information about booster shots for Moderna or Johnson & Johnson will be available if they're approved and after guidance from the CDC and Western States Pact is received.

Masks are still required in all PeaceHealth facilities. The recently updated mask guidelines from the CDC do NOT apply to healthcare settings.
