SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics has the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine on hand and its CEO wants to make sure people know it.
Dr. Charles Fenzi said he was overjoyed on Monday when it received FDA approval.
Doctors believe it will help people who are vaccine-hesitant decide to get the vaccine to protect themselves and others in the community.
People can go to neighborhood clinics now for a free Pfizer vaccination or wait for clinics that will be held when the FDA approval kicks in next month.
Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics plans to bring back its vaccination clinics at Direct Relief and La Cumbra Middle School.
Santa Barbara County Public Health also confirmed that the free Pfizer vaccine is available at the Ralphs Pharmacy, Rite Aid and CVS.
Dr. Fenzi believes the Moderna COVID vaccine will receive FDA approval next.
