The CDC is also allowing people to choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. For example, if you initially had two shots of Pfizer, you can switch to Moderna or J&J.

Find a complete list of Pima County health clinics and mobile sites, with days and hours of operation, at www.pima.gov/covid19vaccine. The vaccine is free, and while no ID is required at county sites, vaccinators will need to verify your name and date of birth to administer any COVID vaccine.
