Vaccine Appointment Scheduling

Updated on 11/9/2021

Scheduling vaccines for children ages 5-11 is now available

Hoag is committed to supporting our patients and community with the COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Currently we are only scheduling and administering vaccines for 5 years and older, which is in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have authorized booster shots of any available COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals who completed primary vaccination with either the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson inoculations, a strategy referred to as “mix and match.”

Eligible individuals include:

  • Immunocompromised patients are eligible for a third dose at least four weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
  • Individuals who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for their primary series at least 6 months ago, and who are 65 years or older, or 18-64 years and at high-risk, can receive a booster vaccine.
  • Individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for their primary vaccine dose at least 2 months ago, and who are 18 years or older, can receive a booster vaccine.

Currently we are only administering the

Pfizer vaccine.

Those who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine will have two options to schedule appointments at Hoag including:

  1. Schedule directly through Hoag Connect MyChart.  If you are a patient of Hoag Medical Group (HMG), Newport Family Medicine (NFM) or Hoag Concierge Medicine (HCM) and have not already activated your Hoag Connect MyChart account, please activate your account by visiting If you need help with Hoag Connect MyChart, please email [email protected].

What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?

  • Please arrive no more than 15 minutes before your scheduled visit.
  • Bring your government-issued photo ID and insurance card.
  • Minors without a government-issued photo ID may bring a birth certificate.
  • Only one person may support you at your appointment.
  • If this is your second, third or booster dose, please bring your vaccine card.
  • Anyone under the age of 18 needs to be accompanied by a legal guardian.
  • Do not take over-the-counter medication (Tylenol, Advil, Motrin) before your vaccination; it can make the vaccine less effective.

Additionally, Hoag is offering vaccine clinics in the community at the following locations:

  • Hoag Fly Well Clinic at John Wayne Airport. The clinic is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and vaccines are offered Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. while supplies last.
