COVID-19 Vaccine

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is now scheduling vaccine appointments for children ages 6 months through 4 years. Our clinics are offering both vaccines: Moderna and Pfizer. Parents are able to choose which vaccine they would like for their child when they are making their appointment. A pharmacist and nurses will be available at the vaccination clinics to help answer any questions or concerns parents may have.

Please note: You must schedule you and/or your family’s appointments under the appropriate vaccine and age group. We reserve the right to cancel appointments scheduled under the incorrect age group as a result of limited appointment availability. 

Reminder: CDC recommends that children ages 5 through 11 years should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series.

CDC has also strengthened its recommendation that those 12 and older who are immunocompromised and those 50 and older should receive a second booster dose at least 4 months after their first.

3rd dose-booster

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 covid19@montcopa.org for directions on how to obtain a duplicate card or check our FAQs under the Vaccine tab.

BOOSTER DOSES

Pfizer boosters are available to those aged 5 & older. Moderna and J&J (Janssen) boosters are available to those aged 18 and older. Appointments are required, no walk-ups will be accepted. Appointments for boosters are released one month at a time. If the date you're eligible to receive your booster on falls outside that range, you will not yet be able to make an appointment or receive a booster and should check back later.

Am I eligible to receive a booster? 

Everyone ages 5 years and older can get a booster dose after completing their COVID-19 vaccine primary series

When can I get my first booster?

For those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines as their primary series, CDC recommends a booster of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine: 

  • For most people, at least 5 months after the final dose in the primary series
  • For people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, at least 3 months after the final dose in the primary series

For those who received the J&J (Janssen) vaccine as their primary series, CDC recommends a booster of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine: 

  • For most people, at least 2 months after the primary dose of J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine
  • For people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, at least 2 months after the additional dose of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine

Those who do not meet the above criteria will be unable to receive their booster dose and will be asked to reschedule their appointment. (Note only Pfizer is approved for people under the age of 18.)

Am I eligible to receive a second booster?

Second booster doses are recommended for all adults ages 50 years or older and people ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised. Residents can register for a second booster dose the same way that they would for their first booster dose, e.g., by selecting “A booster or additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine” on the first screen that appears during registration.

People ages 18–49 years who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised and who received Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine as both their primary series dose and booster dose may receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months after the first Janssen booster dose.

When can I get my second booster?

If you are eligible to receive a second booster, you may receive your 2nd booster at least 4 months after your first booster dose.

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.
