Am I eligible for the vaccine?

Am I eligible for a booster shot?

On November 19, 2021 the CDC expanded booster shot eligibility for anyone in the adults 18 and older who received the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Then, on January 5, 2022 the CDC expanded booster shot eligibility for the Pfizer vaccine to anyone 12 and older.

The CDC recommends children ages 12–17 receive the Pfizer booster shot five months after their second dose of Pfizer, and recommends those 18 and older receive either the Pfizer or Moderna booster shot five months after their second dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

It also recommends that those 18 or older who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine get a Pfizer or Moderna booster at least two months after your first dose.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to legislation passed by Congress and a complimentary Arizona executive orderyou should not pay anything out of pocket to receive the vaccine. While you may be asked for identification of some kind and insurance information to verify who you are, you should be given the vaccine for free and regardless of your immigration status. If you receive the vaccine from your doctor or from another community health clinic, ask them about potential hidden charges for getting your vaccine.

If you want to avoid any chance of receiving a hidden fee for what should be a free vaccine, visit a county-run site, which you can find in our office's vaccine guide.

Where can I get my vaccine?

You can get a vaccine at a number of county-run sites or through your local pharmacy or community health clinic, which you can find through interactive maps provided by the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You can also find same-day appointments directly through nearly every major grocery chain and pharmacy in Arizona, including CVS, Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Fry’s, Safeway and Albertson’s, Costco, Bashas’ and Food City.

If you’re a parent looking for a pediatric office that offers the low-dose Pfizer vaccine for your child aged 5–11, you can find a complete list of those offices in Maricopa county here or use the AZDHS map linked above and search for an office closest to you.

You can also text your ZIP code to 438829 and receive information within seconds on the three closest sites near you.

After your first vaccine dose, you will receive a card that confirms your vaccination and you should expect to be scheduled for your second dose shortly after your shot.
