COVID-19 Booster Shot Program: Make an Appointment

A person receives the COVID-19 vaccination at OHSU Multnomah Pavilion.

Who qualifies for a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot?

    See our booster shot fact sheet  on who should get a booster, who should consider a booster, and who should not get a booster.

    In short, federal health officials have authorized booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine for people who:

    • Are 18 or older.
    • Had Pfizer for their first shots, with their second shot at least six months ago. That means you would be eligible if you had your second shot on or after this date in April.
    • Are at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or at high risk of exposure to COVID-19.

    Prepare for your appointment

    Insurance card: You will receive a vaccine at no cost to you, and you do not need to have health insurance. If you do have insurance, though, please bring your insurance card to your appointment. Providers are allowed to charge your insurance company a fee to cover the cost of providing a booster shot. This fee may temporarily appear in your MyChart account, but you will NOT be billed.

    Bring your vaccine records: You cannot get a booster shot without them. If needed, see "How to replace a lost vaccine card or records" on our vaccine page.

    Don’t come if you are sick: Please do not come to your appointment if you are sick or have symptoms that could be from COVID-19.

    What to wear: Wear something that makes it easy to expose an upper arm for your shot.

    Who can come with you:  You can bring a support person. See the OHSU visitor policy, on our coronavirus resources page, for details on support people. Service animals are allowed. Please leave pets at home.
