Alameda County Public Health Department, in collaboration with MCC East Bay, is hosting a public vaccination clinic for ages 12 and up.

*Unfortunately the pediatric vaccine for 5-11 year old’s will not be available for this clinic. Alameda County Health is working with school districts across the county to host pediatric mobile vaccination clinics and plans to host a mobile vaccination clinic for 5-11 year old’s at MCC in 2022. For our clinic on 11/19 we will be able to vaccinate participants 12+.*

Attendees will receive the Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccine at their preference. Participants must have two doses of the Pfizer vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to achieve maximum effectiveness.

  • First Dose: Friday, October 29th, 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Second Dose: Friday, November 19th, 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Pre-registration encouraged but not necessary for an appointment: https://mcceastbay.org/clinic

This vaccination drive is intended to primarily service the unvaccinated and we recommend participants in need of the booster to receive it from their primary health care provider. The CDC recommends the vaccine booster only for those who received the Pfizer (six months after their last shot).  Booster protection and under age 12 vaccination could soon expand.

We will not be offering a parallel flu clinic at this Covid-19 clinic.

Who is Eligible for a COVID-19 Booster Shot

Certain people are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster shot, including those who received Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago. Learn more

Additional populations may be recommended to receive a booster shot as more data become available.
