The Children’s Discovery Museum will host another Covid vaccination clinic

The San Jose Children’s Discovery Museum and the Santa Clara County Public Health Department will host another vaccination clinic on Sunday for eligible children and their families.

The clinic follows a similar vaccination effort at the museum on January 2. The museum will also hold a clinic on February 13, with at least two more planned this spring.

Residents ages 5 and older will be eligible for their first vaccinations. Those 12 and older will also be eligible for a booster shot if they received either their second dose of vaccine at least five months ago or their single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago. .

Each family that has a child or adult vaccinated at the clinic will receive free museum passes for up to eight people. Museum passes will be valid until May 31.

As with the Jan. 2 clinic, the museum and the county are targeting participants in Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, who are less likely to be vaccinated than the county’s general population.


“We are proud to play a role in immunization equity by reaching out to underserved and non-English speaking communities,” said Marilee Jennings, executive director of the museum.

Vaccines will be available walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis during the clinic, which will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
