New COVID-19 Vaccine, Novavax, Now Available at County-Run Vaccination Clinics in Contra Costa

County-run vaccination clinics in Contra Costa are now offering the recently approved Novavax vaccine for adults who have yet to be immunized.

The Novavax vaccine is different from the Pfizer and Modern vaccines, which use mRNA technology to teach the body to fight against COVID-19. Novavax is a protein-based vaccine similar to others that have been used for decades, such as the hepatitis B and shingles vaccines.

Novavax requires two doses given at least three weeks apart. It has not been approved by the FDA for use as a booster, so it is only available to people ages 18+ who have never gotten a COVID-19 vaccine.

Unvaccinated people can request Novavax when they visit County clinics. To schedule a vaccination appointment, go online or call Contra Costa Health Services at 833-829-2626.

For more information, visit the Contra Costa Health Services About the Vaccine webpage.
