Following approval earlier this week by the CDC and FDA, all Rite Aid locations in California are offering second COVID-19 vaccine booster shots to eligible individuals.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available to anyone 50 or older, as well as certain immunocompromised individuals 12 and older, if four months have elapsed since their first booster shot.

In addition, eligible adults who received a primary and booster dose of the J&J vaccine at least four months ago may now receive a second booster dose of either of the other vaccines.

“Vaccination is critical in the continued fight against COVID-19, and as a proud partner in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, Rite Aid is committed to doing our part to help keep our communities healthy,” said Karen Staniforth, chief pharmacy officer.

“To date, Rite Aid has administered over 15 million COVID-19 vaccinations and encourages anyone who hasn’t received their primary vaccination series to do so, and to get their booster shots when eligible,” she said.

Eligible customers may walk in or schedule an appointment online. Flu and other vaccines are also available.
