Clients attending a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for a 2nd dose, 3rd dose, or a booster dose must bring their CDC vaccination card or a picture of their card on their phone to their appointment. If you lost your card, email email@example.com for directions on how to obtain a duplicate card or check our FAQs under the Vaccine tab.

Appointments are required, no walk-ups will be accepted. Appointments for boosters are released approximately one month at a time (dependent upon vaccine availability). If the date you're eligible to receive your booster on falls outside that range, you will not be able to make an appointment or receive a booster and should check back later.
You must bring a copy of your COVID-19 vaccine card (hard copy (preferred) or a picture of your card on your phone). You will not be able to receive your booster without your COVID-19 vaccine card. If you lost your card, please check the FAQs to find out how to obtain a replacement card.
Age 12 years and older by appointment.
The CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) are now recommending:
- Everyone age 12 years and older receive a single booster dose of the newly recommended bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine (for individuals age 12 years and older) or the bivalent Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (for individuals age 18 years and older).
- This booster should be given at least 2 months after completion of a monovalent primary series or any prior monovalent booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
- At this time, there is no change to the monovalent vaccine schedules for children age 6 months through 11 years.
- You must first complete at least a primary series with the original monovalent vaccine before receiving a single bivalent booster at least 2 months later.
- You may receive either brand of bivalent vaccine that is age-appropriate; there is no preference and no need to match the brand of the primary series.
- The bivalent booster recommendation replaces previous booster recommendations only for people age 12 years and older. At this time, people age 5 through 11 years who have received a Pfizer-BioNTech primary series should continue to receive one monovalent booster dose (see below).
- This recommendation is for a one-time booster. ACIP does not anticipate recommendations for frequent (e.g., every few months) booster doses of bivalent vaccine.
- COVID-19 vaccines may be co-administered with all other routinely recommended vaccines, including influenza vaccine.
Age 5 through 11 years
- Everyone ages 5 years and older can get a booster dose after completing their COVID-19 vaccine primary series.
- There are no booster recommendations for those age 6 months - 4 years at this time.
- Pfizer boosters are available to those aged 5-11.
- For children 5-11, a booster should be given at least 5 months after completion of their primary series.
- For children 5-11 who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, a booster should be given at least 3 months after completion of their primary series
Those who do not meet the criteria stated above will be unable to receive their booster dose and will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

HOMEBOUND INDIVIDUALS IN NEED OF THE COVID-19 VACCINE
GETTING VACCINATED AS A MINOR IN MONTCO
All minors (under age 18) seeking to get vaccinated at a Montgomery County Office of Public Health-run clinics, MUST either be physically accompanied by a parent/legal guardian or an authorized substitute. Authorized substitutes are adult relatives, age 21 or older, who have been authorized by the child's parent to seek medical treatment for the minor. This may include grandparents, aunts/uncles, or siblings (provided they are at least 21 years old). The authorized relative must present a signed copy of the Treatment of a Minor form. If the authorized relative does not have a signed form, the parent may be contacted by phone to give a verbal consent for delegation of care to that minor, and the form should be completed with the parent signature line indicating “verbal consent” and the name of the person witnessing consent.
Please note: Only the Pfizer vaccine has been authorized for those under the age of 18.
