Clinicians may administer vaccines to anyone 5 or older

Gwinnett County Public Schools will host four COVID-19 vaccination clinics in February.

The clinics are open to anyone 5 and older. Children must be with a parent or guardian to receive a shot. Appointments are not required.

The clinics will offer the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses about three weeks apart.

People who are fully vaccinated may also receive a booster shot.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises getting a booster at least five months after receiving a second Pfizer or Moderna shot or two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson shot.
