Looking for vaccine? Here is SMC’s Vaccine Clinic Calendar!

The clinics are all operated or supported by San Mateo County Health. All are open to residents who live or work in San Mateo County and may be scheduled through MyTurn, though appointments are not required. Residents may register on site. Clinics may adjust ending times based on vaccine supply, demand, and other factors.

The clinics listed below are first-dose clinics. Residents receiving a first dose are automatically scheduled in MyTurn to receive a second dose at a clinic 21 days ahead for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna. (Residents needing a second dose may attend a first-dose clinic if they bring their vaccine card to validate that the timing is appropriate for their second dose.)
