We are honored to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to our community. We adhere to all guidance and guidelines. Rankos' Stadium Pharmacy has served Pierce County & Tacoma communities in the past providing vaccinations in a successful emergency response. 

You've come to the right place! 



We cannot accommodate walk-in vaccinations at this time. 

*If no appointment slots are listed, that means we are booked up. Please check back regularly as we try to open more appointments slots every week. Thank you!*

You can sign up for other immunizations (like the flu shot) on t​he same form!


Updated 01/03/2022


A booster dose is recommended when the immune response to the initial vaccine has likely decreased over time. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends certain populations receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Boosters of Pfizer-BioNTech and Janssen (J&J) are both full doses, while Moderna's booster is a half dose.


The CDC recommends a booster dose at least 6 months after completing the primary series for individuals ages 18+. 

  • 2-dose series for initial vaccination
  • FDA-approved for ages 16+
  • EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) for ages 5-15 


The CDC recommends a booster dose at least 6 months after completing the primary series for individuals ages 18+.

J&J (Janssen):

The CDC recommends a booster dose at least 2 months after completing the primary dose for individuals ages 18+. 

  • 1 dose for initial vaccination 
  • EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) for ages 18+. 

Mix & Match COVID -19 Vaccine Boosters:

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may  prefer  the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for  booster shots.

We have a dedicated COVID -19 email for all COVID -19 questions:

We realize this is a difficult time for everyone & we are here for you. Please DO NOT CALL the general pharmacy line with appointment & COVID -19 questions. This line is RESERVED for pharmacy patients and prescribers. Calling our pharmacy line slows processes and decreases our ability to provide vaccinations & increase appointments.

Need a vaccination other than COVID -19? Email to make an appointment.

After Vaccination


Weekly Check-ins

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell the CDC if you have any side effects. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information. V-safe will also remind you about further vaccine doses if needed.
