Vaccine Clinics

En español »

In the past month, Sonoma County has set up several vaccination clinics and announced new ones for the coming weeks. People who are medically underserved, or who have no insurance, will be able to access the vaccine through a county or partner clinic within state and federal guidelines for distribution. View the distribution phases »

Where will I get my vaccine?

State and federal guidance allows for individuals over 65 to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, though availability is limited. Sonoma County continues to prioritize vaccine distribution to those most vulnerable to COVID-19 due to high risk of exposure at work and for those with access issues. The Department of Health is coordinating with primary care providers on plans for expanding immunizations, your health center will contact you about scheduling when the vaccine is available for you.

When you are eligible for a vaccine, and not before that, you will be able to make an appointment through your provider, or at a vaccination clinic. Due to the ongoing short inventory of vaccines, appointments may be difficult to find in the near term, but more appointments will become available as supply increases.

List of Vaccine Clinics open to Eligible Groups

For more information about vaccine priority and when the vaccine will be available to you, please see Vaccine Distribution.

Please note:

  1. Vaccine clinics are open to those living in Sonoma County.

Getting Vaccinated

The two authorized and recommended vaccines to prevent COVID-19 in the United States both need two shots to be effective. There is one COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 3 clinical trials in the United States that uses one shot.

Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. However, vaccination providers will be able to charge an administration fee for giving the shot to someone. Vaccine providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.

CDC is making recommendations for who should be offered COVID-19 vaccine first when supplies are limited. To help guide decisions about how to distribute limited initial supplies of COVID-19 vaccine, CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices have published recommendations for which groups should be vaccinated first. The goal is for everyone to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as large quantities of vaccine are available.

While CDC makes recommendations for who should be offered COVID-19 vaccine first, each state has its own plan for vaccine prioritization, distribution and allocation. The California Department of Public Health’s prioritizations are available here. 

Learn how CDC is making COVID-19 vaccine recommendations, including recommendations if there is a limited supply, based on input from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

COVID-19 vaccination should be offered to you regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection. You should not be required to have an antibody test before you are vaccinated.

However, anyone currently infected with COVID-19 should wait to get vaccinated until after their illness has resolved and after they have met the criteria to discontinue isolation.

Additionally, current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection. Therefore, people with a recent infection may delay vaccination until the end of that 90-day period if desired.

Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools available. Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Other steps, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask and staying at least 6 feet away from others, help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.

Yes. While experts learn more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide under real-life conditions, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop this pandemic, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC’s recommendations for how to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from getting and spreading COVID-19. Experts need to understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide before deciding to change recommendations on steps everyone should take to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Other factors, including how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision.

The protection someone gains from having an infection (called natural immunity) varies depending on the disease, and it varies from person to person. Since this virus is new, we don’t know how long natural immunity might last. Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection.

Regarding vaccination, we won’t know how long immunity lasts until we have more data on how well the vaccines work.

Both natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity are important aspects of COVID-19 that experts are trying to learn more about, and CDC will keep the public informed as new evidence becomes available.

To schedule your second dose, contact the organization that set up your first appointment. This is also who you reach out to if you have questions or if you are having trouble scheduling an appointment. For contact information, visit this page.
 
You will need two doses for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The timing between your first and second dose depends on which vaccine you received. If you received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, schedule your second dose three weeks (or 21 days) after the first dose. If you received the Moderna vaccine, schedule your appointment four weeks (or 28 days) after your first dose.
 
You should get your second dose as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, though you should not get the second dose earlier than the recommended interval. There is no maximum interval between the first and second doses for either vaccine. Side effects might include a sore arm or flu-like symptoms and could affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Having flu-like symptoms means that your body is building an immune response which tells you that the vaccine is working. Unless a vaccination provider or your doctor advises against it, be sure to get the second dose even if you have side effects after the first dose. Also, please be aware that it takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination–it may take a week or two after your second dose before you are protected.
