Previous Update: October 21, 2021

Starting Monday October 25th, DOHC will begin offering COVID-19 booster doses with mix and match options for all 3 brands at vaccine clinics in:

  • Palm Springs
  • Indio
  • Yucca Valley

MyTurn.CA.GOV will update with the ability to schedule a booster for Moderna and Janssen on 10/25/21 and will update for the ability to mix and match on 10/26/21.

We encourage YOU to schedule an appointment; however, walk-ins will still be allowed. Members of the community can also schedule a booster appointment or walk in.

Please Note:

  • You must have started and completed the required series of COVID-19 vaccinations (2 Pfizer; 2 Moderna, 1 Janssen J&J) to be eligible to receive a booster dose. We remain committed to encouraging and providing the unvaccinated with an opportunity to start and complete their primary vaccine series.
  • The guidance for the primary vaccine series has not changed, and while the data continues to grow for the age group of 5-11 year olds, we do not yet have the ability to vaccinate this population.
  • If you have not already received your 2021 flu shot, you can schedule and receive your flu shot at the same time.
Guidance for Mixing and Matching Boosters:
  • The same brand used for the primary vaccine series should be used for the booster
    • If the same brand is not available or another brand is preferred , boosting is allowed with another authorized COVID-19 vaccine brand
  • Mixing of brands is only allowed for booster doses not the primary vaccine series
    • All doses of the primary series and additional doses (if indicated for moderately to severely immunocompromised people) should use the same brand
  • The time between primary series completion and the booster dose is determined by the brand used for the primary series (please see the below grid)
    • Those who received a single dose of Janssen can receive either another dose of Janssen or the appropriate booster dose of Moderna or Pfizer 2 months after series completion
    • Those who received a complete series of Moderna or Pfizer can received the appropriate booster dose of Moderna, Pfizer, or Janssen 6 months after series completion
  • An individual risk-benefit decision with the help of a clinician may help determine the brand to use
    • Brand availability
    • Risk of vaccine brand based upon rare events

If you or someone you know has questions about receiving the available vaccines, please contact us through the DOHC Vaccine Hotline: 760-808-8400.

Thank you for your continued efforts to care for your own, your family’s, and the community’s health!

This is how we end a pandemic!
