Contra Costa County Makes Omicron-Targeting COVID Booster Vaccines Available

Published: Last Updated on 25 comments

Contra Costa County will begin offering the omicron-targeting COVID-19 booster vaccines today at its vaccination clinics, county health officials said.

Federal regulators approved the boosters manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna last week.

Both vaccines are bivalent, targeting the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants of omicron as well as the original COVID strain.


The Moderna booster is available to adults while the Pfizer booster is available to people ages 12 and up. People are eligible for one dose of the omicron-targeting booster if they received their last vaccine dose at least two months prior.

The new boosters will be used for all future booster vaccinations for people ages 12 and up while the original mRNA vaccines will only be authorized for initial vaccine series for those aged 6 months and up and as a booster for kids between ages 5 and 11.

Nearly 84 percent of Contra Costa County residents have completed their initial vaccination series while 54.3 percent have received at least one booster vaccine dose.

Booster vaccination appointments for Contra Costa County can be made by calling (833) 829-2626.

Boosters are also available via walk-in at county-run clinics in Concord, Antioch and Richmond and at retail pharmacies and standard health care providers.

No Thanks

TraumaRx September 9, 2022 - 11:14 AM

It should be mandatory everyone get boosted.

Cyn September 9, 2022 - 12:09 PM

No, TraumaRx……what should be mandatory is someone serving their full sentence for attempted murder, not just 11 months. And how about making jail mandatory for anyone calling for mandatory injections?

bdmlpratt September 9, 2022 - 3:16 PM

I second that Cyn! TraumaRx is always advocating that people take this shot even with the serious side effects. I never understand people that have decided what’s good for them & then demand that everyone do as they say. Natural antibodies are far superior & TraumaRx who is always crowing on about being on the front lines & having a super smart husband should know this. No thanks TraumaRx you can have all the boosters you demand that everybody take then you will be super safe right?

Oh, please September 9, 2022 - 9:09 PM

Yep just comply and don’t say anything. I guess you think it would be great to have another holocaust happen now.

It’s a fake vaccine…. just like all the others offered by the government and pharmaceutical companies.

In other news, I heard that there is a new app coming out that has A.I. identify covid in somebodys voice. Totally serious.

The Great Reset is not coming; its here.

bdmlpratt September 9, 2022 - 3:17 PM

That’s great & an app I will not be downloading

Show of hands – How many got Covid, remained unvaccinated, and have yet to get it again.

Next, for the vaccinated- are you on your 3rd or 4th time? 5th?

Personally every vaxed and boosted I know is on at least their 3rd go around. Your mileage may vary.

Science has proven that our own antibodies do what they do best. But, if you have taken the vax road, you are forever a profit child, sorry.

FPN September 9, 2022 - 12:40 PM

No shots, no covid.

Bill W September 9, 2022 - 1:24 PM

No Vaxx, had Covid (Omicron?) Christmas ’21 nothing since.

Justifiable languor September 9, 2022 - 1:31 PM

Not vaxxed. Two shots and 4 boosters? That is Not a success story. I haven’t been sick as far as I can tell. I’ll keep my Antibodies thankyou.

Deb Shay September 11, 2022 - 10:37 AM

Unvaxxed, just got covid this week. Honestly, what’s all the hubbub? Sure, I felt lousy for a few days. but I’ve had the flu FAR worse.

Nearly everyone I know who has been vaccinated has gotten covid once, many multiple times and were very ill. I also know many people who are unvaccinated and they have not gotten covid at all.

No clot shot for me. With healthy people dropping like flies and all-cause mortality at record levels, I’d be terrified if I had been vaccinated.

Skeptical September 9, 2022 - 12:31 PM

Not previously tested on humans. Just stop.

FPN September 9, 2022 - 12:42 PM

I am one of the few I know that has not had covid.

Chicken Little September 9, 2022 - 1:29 PM

Neither my wife nor I have had COVID, and it’s definitely not because we’re vaccinated and boosted, wear masks, and stay home.

Rollo Tomasi September 9, 2022 - 3:39 PM

I’m in the same boat as the two of you. However, all I really know is that I never experienced the symptoms of COVID. That doesn’t mean I was never infected with Coronavirus. I’ve only tested three times, and once was to fly back to the US.

The Observer September 9, 2022 - 1:59 PM

My wife and I got our Moderna bivalent boosters yesterday. I’m glad that the vaccine has been updated to target the ba.4/ba.5 variants, since that’s what’s been causing nearly all Covid infections lately. With Covid cases on the decline, along with having the updated vaccine, we won’t be very concerned about Covid for the rest of the year.

bdmlpratt September 9, 2022 - 3:19 PM

I never was concerned about a virus with a 99% recovery. I prefer to let my body do what’s always done

Rollo Tomasi September 9, 2022 - 3:40 PM

Do the new boosters prevent infection?

LocalAntiLib September 9, 2022 - 3:42 PM

We’ve never been concerned about Covid since it started and we’ve never vaccinated. Seems it goes both ways eh..
Oh and very rarely ever wore masks this whole time as well.

Oh, please September 9, 2022 - 9:12 PM

I finally got it due to really awful extended family members. I was forced to get vaccinated for work and my covid was a week-long flu with all associated sxs. My kids NEVER tested positive that whole time and they are unvaccinated. This is not surprising to me at all.

El D September 9, 2022 - 9:21 PM

Have an appointment to get the new booster next week. Will be doing some traveling in the next few months as well as checking in on elderly relatives. Haven’t had Covid yet and I’d like to keep it that way. Don’t want to give it to the old folks, either.

Deb Shay September 11, 2022 - 10:40 AM

Well, hopefully this “vaccine” will work better than the last ones which neither prevented one from getting nor transmitting the virus.

If you’re really that worried, you should just stay home.

Graceful September 10, 2022 - 1:53 PM

Interesting to see those crying for it to be mandatory and compulsary..

I guess that means strapping down individuals reluctant to do so…in fact, how come some jobs made it mandatory but not all the homeless people living on top of each other in unsanitary conditions, polluting the water ways and setting fires accidentally were not made to get vaccines…or move for that matter?

And I find it out that during the pandemic there were not large areas of dead homeless people. Amazing… I think the wheels are coming off the pandemic bus…
