Ventura County Public Health announced that as of March 31 a second COVID-19 booster vaccination shot is available to those eligible. 

The Food and Drug Administration authorized a second booster for the following people: 

• People who are 50 and over who have received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, and it has been at least four months since the first booster dose was received. 

• For those immunocompromised or otherwise with a weakened immune system:

• Those 12 and over may receive a second Pfizer booster four months after receiving the first booster dose. 

• Those 18 and over may receive a second Moderna booster at least four months after the first booster dose. 

To obtain a second booster shot, proof of a completed vaccination series is required by showing a white vaccination card, a photo of the card, or a digital record of vaccination. 

First booster doses are authorized for everyone over 12 years of age when it has been over five months after completing the Pfizer vaccination series or six months since completing the Moderna vaccination series, or over two months since receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

Free transportation is available to vaccination sites for those who need support and in-home vaccination for homebound individuals. Call 805-477-7300.
