Vaccine Information

Second Dose

If you have already received your first dose of vaccine, the date to return for your second dose is shown on the back of your Vaccination Record Card. Please come at approximately the same time as your first dose appointment.

Booster Shots and Additional Doses

A COVID-19 booster shot is an additional dose of a vaccine given after the protection provided by the original shot(s) has begun to decrease over time. Typically, you would get a booster after the initial dose(s) immunity naturally starts to wane. The booster is designed to help people maintain their level of immunity for longer.

Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Janssen (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine boosters are being administered at LVMC.

Cost and Payment for Vaccinations

COVID-19 vaccines, including their administration, are free for all Californians, regardless of insurance and immigration status. If you have received a bill for payment of a COVID-19 vaccination at Lompoc Valley Medical Center, please disregard the bill. These bills were sent in error and you will not be held accountable for payment.

You got vaccinated — great! Now what?

Once you reach full immunity, your risk of getting a moderate to severe case of COVID-19 is greatly reduced, and you’ll want to go places and see people. You should still wear a mask in public and around unvaccinated people, according to the CDC. If you’re around other fully vaccinated people in a private setting, go ahead and take your masks off.

You are considered to be fully vaccinated:

  • Two weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series, such as Moderna or Pfizer
  • Two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson

You are NOT fully protected if it has been less than two weeks since your shot or if you still need a second dose. Take all preventative measures until you are fully vaccinated. According to the Centers for Disease Control, you may start to do some things that you had to stop once you are vaccinated because of the pandemic. But remember, you should still wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart from other people, avoid crowds and avoid poorly ventilated spaces.
