Anyone age 12 and over should get the vaccine. For those who are 12-17 years of age, they can only get the Pfizer vaccine. It is the best way to protect yourself and your family.

It offers great protection. Compared to the annual flu vaccine, it is twice as effective.

Yes, it is safe. Over 390 million doses have been given in the United States and bad reactions are extremely rare. Benefits of vaccine outweigh the potential risks.

After the second dose, there is a high chance of side effects similar to a flu vaccine (arm soreness, muscle aches, headache, tiredness) for a few days. This is expected and can be a good sign that your immune system is working.

If you are allergic to polyethylene glycol (Miralax), you should not get the current COVID vaccine.

If you develop immediate allergic reaction (hives, wheezing) to the first COVID vaccine, you should reach out to your provider before getting the second shot.

You can get the vaccine. Please discuss this with your doctor first if you still have concerns.

The current vaccine is free. Alameda County is currently working with state and local clinics like AHS and local pharmacies to provide the vaccine to our community. To look for the vaccine clinic closest to you, visit myturn.ca.gov.
