Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record: : Your Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record is an electronic vaccination record drawn from the data stored in the California immunization registry. Fill out the required fields to get a Digital Vaccine Record.

The Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD) is administering bivalent COVID-19 vaccines per updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Register for an appointment on Walk-ins are also welcome every Monday and Wednesday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (closed for lunch 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) For questions regarding available vaccines, contact PPHD’s immunization clinic 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, a photo of the white card, or a digital record.

PPHD encourages everyone who is eligible to stay up to date on vaccines and booster doses. Masking is strongly recommended, but not required, for everyone regardless of vaccination status. Wearing a well-fitted surgical mask or respirator (e.g., N95, KN95, KF94) in indoor public spaces can reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to others.

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

All currently authorized COVID-19 vaccines have gone through rigorous studies to ensure they are safe and effective.

What is the Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine?

The bivalent COVID-19 vaccine contains components of the original COVID-19 strain and the omicron variant to provide broad protection against COVID-19.

On April 18th, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deauthorized the use of the monovalent Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines, which acted as the “original” primary series vaccines to provide protection against COVID-19. The Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent MRNA vaccines are now authorized to be used for all doses administered to individuals 6 months of age and older. The recommended number of bivalent doses varies by age, vaccine, previous COVID-19 vaccines received, and the presence of moderate or severe immunocompromised conditions. Details of the new guidance can be found on the CDC website.

How do COVID-19 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 two 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.

How do I know if I've gotten all the COVID-19 vaccines I need?

Being fully vaccinated with your primary series 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 dose when eligible. View the updated COVID-19 vaccine schedule to determine your eligibility for a booster dose.

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.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine available to children?

Yes. The COVID-19 vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Pasadena residents should first contact their healthcare provider or local pharmacy for vaccine availability. Learn more here: 6 Things to Know about COVID-19 Vaccination for Children

What are COVID-19 vaccine side effects and adverse reactions?

You may have some possible side effects which are normal signs that your body is building protection. Side effects may feel like the flu and even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Side effects and adverse reactions such as an allergic reaction can be reported to VAERS.

Is it okay to switch COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers?

The CDC does not recommend mixing products for your primary series doses. All COVID-19 vaccine primary series doses should be from the same manufacturer except in the following exceptional situations:

  • Same vaccine not available
  • Previous dose unknown
  • Person would otherwise not complete the primary series
  • Person starts but is unable to complete a primary series with the same COVID-19 vaccine due to a contraindication
