Individuals age 16 and older are able to get the Pfizer vaccine and those age 18 and older can get either the Johnson & Johnson or Moderna vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is FREE and available to everyone, regardless of immigration status.

“We are also focused on making the COVID vaccine available in our rural communities, and I urge our residents to get vaccinated so that we can maintain our path to reopening while preventing transmission of infections to vulnerable family members and friends,” stated Dr. Karen Haught, Tulare County Health Officer. “This vaccine is our best line of defense against the COVID-19 virus, as we look to build immunity in our community and ultimately bring this horrible pandemic to an end.”
