Vaccinations Update

NorthBay Healthcare is committed to supporting our patients with our COVID-19 vaccination efforts.

The CDC recently published the following recommendations regarding a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine:

  • Individuals who are 65 and older, as well as residents in long-term care setting, should receive a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series.
  • Individuals aged 50-64 with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series.
  • Individuals aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • Individuals aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.
  • Immunocompromised patients are eligible for a third dose at least 28 days after their second dose.

For convenient and fast scheduling, we recommend patients who meet the above criteria visit MyTurn and select “3rd dose scheduling for booster dose.”

At this time, we are only offering the third dose to established NorthBay primary care patients who are age 65+. These patients can make an appointment at our primary care centers in Vacaville, Fairfield & Green Valley by calling (707) 646-5500.

For all other patients who wish to be vaccinated, please visit MyTurn.

We vow to help you and your family stay healthy

Our commitment to helping you and your family stay healthy during the coronavirus outbreak and to keeping you up-to-date on resources available is our top priority.

If you are experiencing serious symptoms such as chest pain, abdominal pain or signs of a stroke, do not delay seeking care. Our ERs are safe and prepared to handle emergencies. For many serious conditions, rapid treatment is critical and the consequences of putting off needed medical care are often irreversible.

To protect you, NorthBay Healthcare has implemented stringent safety measures:

Super-cleaning our facilities

We’ve added extra staff to our specially trained disinfecting team to increase the frequency of cleanings and are using advanced disinfecting robotic technology and UV light that rapidly kills viruses and bacteria.

Ample supply of protective equipment

Our supply chain team has secured an adequate supply of masks, gloves and face shields to meet current and future needs. Their efforts were aided by generous donations from local businesses, dentists and individuals.
