Information About Booster Shots

Release Date: 2021-08-18

The federal government has announced that starting late September, booster shots will be made available to those who initially received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines eight months after their second dose. In Long Beach, we are already planning for this major effort and are committed to making these shots available to all residents and workers in the weeks ahead.

We’ve built the infrastructure to take on this challenge. Our health department will be providing detailed information in the weeks ahead about how to get your booster shot. A full statement from our Long Beach Health Department is available here.

For those who are immunocompromised, booster shots are available now and information about how to get a booster shot is available here.

It is expected that people who received the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine also will likely need a booster shot in the future, but that is still being determined. We will share more information when it becomes available.

For more information about Long Beach overall vaccination clinics and hours of operation, please visit longbeach.gov/vaxlb or call 562-570-4636.

Thank you and stay healthy,

Mayor Robert Garcia
