    And while you’re there, why not also have your flu shot. Both will be available at our LightHouse 1155 Market Street HQ. You will need to register by phone to have your booster vaccination at the LightHouse location.

    To register to attend the LightHouse vaccination clinic at 1155 Market Street, you will first need to make an appointment by calling the Vaccine Call Center at 628-652-2700.

    On that call you will be able to make an appointment for your booster vaccination at the LightHouse site.

    When you call this number, you will be asked for some basic personal information:

    • Name of vaccine site you wish to go to
    • Where and when you got initial COVID-19 shot(s)
    • Date and time you’d like for your booster shot appointment
    • First and last name
    • Date of birth
    • Phone number
    • Home address
    • Email address

    This appointment line is open and staffed from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm Monday thru Friday.

    Voicemail messages can be left for call back outside of these hours.
    This line is available to speakers of both Spanish and English. Other language interpreters are available once you leave a voicemail requesting a call back.

    Please note: If you have not registered by making an appointment through the Vaccine Call Center, you will not be able to get the vaccine at our headquarters. We are only accepting appointments (no drop-ins) at LightHouse.

    Please note: Any of the COVID-19 vaccines can be used for booster vaccination, regardless of the vaccine product used for primary vaccination. Both Pfizer & Moderna booster vaccines will be available during the four clinic dates. These clinics are for booster vaccinations only and the clinics are for people ages 18 and up. Vaccines for children ages 5-11 years old will not be available at the LightHouse, however staff can refer to other sites in the city offering pediatric vaccines.

    • People aged ≥18 years who received a single dose J&J primary series should receive a single COVID-19 booster dose (Pfizer, Moderna or J&J) at least 2 months (8 weeks) after completing their J&J primary series.
