We offer the flu vaccine & the COVID-19 vaccine. The flu vaccine saves lives, reduces sick days, and is available to everyone age 6 months and older. We are an official vaccination site for California Department of Public Health.
GARDASIL®9 (Human Papillomavirus 9-valent Vaccine, Recombinant) helps protect individuals ages 9 to 45 against the following diseases caused by 9 types of HPV: cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers in females, anal cancer, certain head and neck cancers, such as throat and back of mouth cancers and genital warts in both males and females.
GARDASIL 9 may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. GARDASIL 9 does not prevent all types of cervical, vulvar, vaginal, anal or head and neck cancers. Vaccination does not remove the need for recommended screenings for these cancers, and itʼs important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL 9 does not treat cancer or genital warts.
GARDASIL 9 is a shot that is usually given in the arm muscle. GARDASIL 9 may be given as 2 or 3 shots.
- For persons 9 through 14 years of age, GARDASIL 9 can be given using a 2-dose or 3-dose schedule. For the 2-dose schedule, the second shot should be given 6–12 months after the first shot. If the second shot is given less than 5 months after the first shot, a third shot should be given at least 4 months after the second shot. For the 3-dose schedule, the second shot should be given 2 months after the first shot and the third shot should be given 6 months after the first shot.
- For persons 15 through 45 years of age, GARDASIL 9 is given using a 3-dose schedule; the second shot should be given 2 months after the first shot and the third shot should be given 6 months after the first shot.
The appropriate dosing schedule will be determined by your health care professional.
Everyone ages 6 months and older is eligible for a primary series of the COVID-19 vaccine. The eligibility requirements for additional doses for immunocompromised people vary by COVID-19 vaccine brand. Everyone ages 5+ should get a bivalent Pfizer or Moderna booster dose at least 2 months after completing their primary series. Adults ages 18+ who are unable to get a bivalent booster should get a monovalent Novavax booster, at least 6 months after completing their primary series.
To learn more, see the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility chart..
The mRNA-based bivalent Pfizer and Moderna boosters target both the original and new strains of the virus. They offer the best protection against the types of COVID-19 you’re most likely to be exposed to now and in the future. Everyone ages 5+ who has completed a primary vaccination series or received a booster dose in the past should get a bivalent booster if it’s been at least 2 months since their last dose.
The protein-based monovalent Novavax booster only targets the original strain of the virus and is an option for adults who are unable to get a bivalent booster due to a medical reason or lack of availability. Only people ages 18+ who completed a primary series at least 6 months ago and have not received a booster in the past are eligible for a Novavax booster.
You can also talk to your primary care provider or local health department about getting tested and treated for COVID-19.
For more information about when to get tested, visit the California COVID-19 website.
NOTE: Children age 5 who completed a primary series of Moderna are only eligible for a bivalent booster dose of Pfizer.
You should have received a COVID-19 vaccination card at your vaccine appointment that documents the vaccine brand you were given and the date it was administered. To get a link to a QR code and digital copy of your COVID-19 vaccination record, go to: myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov
NOTE: If you already have the QR code for your digital vaccine record, and then get an additional or booster dose, that dose is not automatically added to your record. You’ll need to go back to myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov to get a new QR code. We recommend waiting up to 14 days before requesting a new code.
You can schedule an appointment for up to five members of a family or group if each of the following applies:
- Every member of your group is receiving the same dose (1st, 2nd, booster) of the COVID-19 vaccine.
- Every member of your group is receiving the same brand and dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine.
NOTE: Due to different dosage sizes, the following age ranges must be scheduled individually or in groups of their own: ages 6 months through 4 years, age 5, ages 6 through 11, and ages 12+.
All other eligible age groups for Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson remain available under the FDA’s emergency use authorization (EUA). Get the EUA fact sheet. Novavax is also available under EUA to prevent COVID-19 in people ages 12+. Get the Novavax EUA fact sheet.
Yes, but eligibility depends on which COVID-19 vaccine you received and how many required doses you completed:
- People vaccinated outside the US with an FDA-authorized/approved vaccine can receive a 2nd, booster, or additional dose that follows US eligibility and timing schedules.
- People who received either one or both doses of a World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use Listed (EUL) vaccine can receive a 2nd, booster, or additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine that follows US eligibility and timing schedules.
- People who started or completed a COVID-19 vaccine that’s not WHO-EUL should start over with an FDA-authorized/approved vaccine and timing schedule.
See a list of WHO-EUL vaccines.
After your vaccine you will be monitored on-site for at least 15 minutes. You’ll receive a vaccination card with the date you received your vaccine and the date of your next appointment, if one is needed. Remember to bring your vaccination card to all future appointments, including 2nd, additional, and booster doses.
Yes, COVID-19 vaccines and other vaccines may now be administered without regard to timing. This includes receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines on the same day.
With any vaccine, look for any unusual conditions, such as a high fever, behavior changes, or signs of a severe allergic reaction. These symptoms would most likely occur within a few minutes to a few hours after receiving the vaccine.
An ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to create a picture (also known as a sonogram) of organs, tissues, and other structures inside the body. Unlike x-rays, ultrasounds don’t use any radiation. An ultrasound can also show parts of the body in motion, such as a heart beating or blood flowing through blood vessels.
There are two main categories of ultrasounds: pregnancy ultrasound and diagnostic ultrasound.
- Pregnancy ultrasound is used to look at an unborn baby. The test can provide information about a baby’s growth, development, and overall health.
- Diagnostic ultrasound is used to view and provide information about other internal parts of the body. These include the heart, blood vessels, liver, bladder, kidneys, and female reproductive organs.
Other names: sonogram, ultrasonography, pregnancy sonography, fetal ultrasound, obstetric ultrasound, diagnostic medical sonography, diagnostic medical ultrasound.
