Wednesday COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics are Free at Mt. SAC Kerr’s Corner

Mt. San Antonio College is partnering with Fulgent and Los Angeles County Public Health to provide on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinics on Wednesdays. The free clinics will be available for anyone 5 years or older, including Mt. SAC employees, students, and community members. Pediatric doses for children 5-17 require an appointment, a parent/guardian to be present and evidence of age. Booster shots are now available for anyone 18 years and older. These booster doses should be taken at least 6 months after the second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or at least 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson dose. Individuals can choose which vaccine to receive as a booster dose. Appointments can be made through the Fulgent website at vaccine.fulgentgenetics.com.

Each clinic will provide COVID-19 vaccines produced by Pfizer, Moderna and/or Janssen (a Johnson & Johnson company). Pfizer’s vaccine has FDA approval for the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals 16 and older. The other two companies received FDA emergency-use authorization for their adult COVID-19 vaccines, alongside Pfizer’s vaccines for youths 5-11 and 12-15 years of age. The vaccines are safe and effective in protecting against COVID-19 in trials. In the rare case a vaccinated individual becomes sick with COVID-19, they are less likely to require hospitalization. The community is encouraged to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines by

Recipients of the vaccine just need to show proof of their age with any official document that includes their name and date of birth. Examples include California ID cards, school records, medical documents (including immunization records), and passports (foreign country and expired are OK).
