The County of San Mateo is launching weekly mass-vaccination clinics for anyone who lives or works in the county at the San Mateo County Event Center

Sixteen and 17-year-old San Mateo County residents are eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine May 4, 2021, at the San Mateo Event Center site with parental or guardian consent. No pre-registration is necessary, but appointments can be made on and the clinic code is “SMCEC.” The site is drive-thru only. Minor teens must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the vaccination site or bring a consent form, signed in advance by a parent or guardian, to the clinic. The consent form and more information is available for download in English and Spanish.

The San Mateo Event Center is located at 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, CA, 94403. The hours for Tuesday’s Pfizer clinics are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

At the weekly mass-vaccination events, appointments for the first-dose are open to anyone 16 or over (for Pfizer clinics) or 18 or over (for Moderna or Johnson & Johnson clinics). Participants must live or work in
San Mateo County and can make appointments up to three days in advance. Residents under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
