more ways to get vaccinated
why should i get vaccinated

Fight Spread

Anaheim and Orange County are finally seeing a decline in cases following a summer surge led by the Delta variant. The surge was largely driven by those who were not vaccinated.

Case rates among the vaccinated are significantly lower with severe illness, hospitalization and death extremely rare. Getting vaccinated is the best way to help slow down the spread of the virus and ensure we continue on a path out of the summer surge.

More freedom and protection for you and your family

Once fully vaccinated, you have greater protection against contracting a serious case of COVID-19, hospitalization and death.

Being "fully vaccinated" means that you are two weeks after your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after your only dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

In many areas of the state and the nation, there are greater freedoms for those who can show proof of vaccination, and greater restrictions and testing burdens on those who are not vaccinated. Travel to many countries is also restricted, or more difficult, for those who have not been fully vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated means getting back to normal and putting COVID behind us.

Vaccines are safe and they work

Millions of vaccines have been administered in California, including into the arms of more than half of Orange County's population.

There have been little to no major adverse reactions, and we're already seeing the benefits of our journey toward herd immunity.

There's a lot of talk and even misinformation surrounding COVID-19 vaccines. But rest assured: Vaccines are safe.

The vaccine does not contain the virus. It will not give you COVID-19.

The vaccine contains the biological blueprint to create a harmless protein associated with coronavirus, which then helps your body learn how to fight the virus.

The vaccines have been carefully evaluated in clinical trials.

It's essential that everyone get vaccinated when they are able so we can get put this pandemic behind us. Vaccines are our ticket out of this crisis for good.

boosters and third doses

Booster shots

Booster shots are now authorized for some groups by the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health for Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Those eligible for a booster shot of Pfizer or Moderna include:

  • Those 65 years of age and older
  • Those 18 and older who live in a long-term care facility
  • Those 18 and older with underlying medical conditions or who are at increased risk of social inequities
  • Those 18 and older who work in a high risk setting, including healthcare workers, first responders, education and food service employees

Boosters are recommended six months after the initial dose is received.

For the Johnson & Johnson shot, it is recommended that anyone who received an initial dose of the vaccine get a second dose after two months.

Booster shots are available, or will soon become available, at any location that currently offers vaccinations. Find an appointment at MyTurn.ca.gov.

Federal and state review panels have also said that mixing and matching vaccine brands for a booster dose is acceptable.

Third doses

A third dose of Modern and Pfizer vaccines are authorized for those with compromised immune systems. This is different than a booster dose, as it is meant to ensure greater immunity among those for whom two doses is not sufficient.

Third doses can be received 28 days after the second dose.

Those who are considered immunocompromised include people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

vaccine records

Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record

All vaccinated individuals are encouraged to keep their paper CDC immunization card in a safe and secure place for their records.

In addition, California has launched an online digital vaccine record tool where vaccinated people can submit their name, phone number and birthday and receive a QR code that shows their vaccination record.

Go to Myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov  to get your free vaccine record.
