“Now is the time to get ready.” Booster shots are coming.
Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian urged County staff and his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors to move quickly in rolling out booster shots for eligible individuals who live or work in Santa Clara County. Simitian’s appeal was made amid a resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the County.
Simitian’s request was made in anticipation of an announcement by the Biden administration that it plans to offer booster shots starting September 20 to all Americans who got Pfizer or Moderna vaccines more than eight months ago. Simitian said, “Our County has to be prepared to dispense booster shots this fall to all who want them, as quickly as advisable.”
