For questions regarding the vaccines we offer, contact PPHD’s immunization department at (626) 744-6309.


At PPHD COVID-19 vaccine clinics, individuals previously vaccinated for COVID-19 will need to bring proof of previous COVID-19 vaccination history, which for most people will be in the form of the white vaccination card, or a photo of the white card, or a digital record.


Fully vaccinated individuals should continue wearing masks, staying at least 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding large crowds and gatherings until the vaccine has been widely distributed. Fully vaccinated, however, is not the same as having the best protection. People are best protected when they stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, which includes getting a booster when eligible.

Keep checking back for additional provider listings. New locations will be added as they become available.

What is the Bivalent Booster?

On August 31, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Bivalent Booster, also referred to as the “updated boosters” for both Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines. The bivalent vaccines include components of the original virus strain and the component of the omicron variant to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by the omicron variant. See details 

How do vaccines work?

COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19 without us having to get the illness. It typically takes a few weeks for the body to produce antibodies after vaccination. Therefore, it is possible that a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection.

Will a COVID-19 vaccination prevent me from getting sick with COVID-19?

People who are fully vaccinated and boosted are much less likely to be infected with COVID-19 and much less likely to spread the virus to others. Some evidence suggests that vaccination may make illness less severe for those who experience a breakthrough infection and get sick.

Can I get vaccinated for COVID-19 while I am sick with COVID-19?

No. People with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for ending isolation.  Those without symptoms should also wait until they meet the criteria before getting vaccinated.
