Due to high demand, appointments are now required for COVID-19 shots and boosters at all San Mateo County-operated clinics. The county announced it would no longer accept walk-ins in a release issued on Dec. 1.
Appointments for the San Mateo County Event Center or other community clinics are available through MyTurn.ca.gov.
Even with an appointment, attendees should expect a wait time. Boosters are also available at community clinics, health care providers and pharmacies, many without needing an appointment. A schedule of county-operated community clinics is available at https://www.smchealth.org/vaccine-clinic-calendar
Pediatric vaccine shots (ages 5-11) are still available at the children’s clinic also located at the Event Center. Appointment through MyTurn are strongly encouraged but walk-ins are accepted.
The San Mateo Event Center is located at 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, 94403.
