Important Reminder for Teens
The Pfizer vaccine is available to those 12 years of age and older.
The decision by FDA and CDC to expand and recommend the use of the vaccine among adolescents followed an in-depth review of available safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy data.
A parental guardian must sign a consent form for minors ages 12-17. Most providers will require parental guardian to accompany minors to get the vaccination.
For people ages 12 – 17 years old, they will need to make an appointment for the Pfizer vaccine. That is the only vaccine authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for that age group. The Moderna and the Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccines are authorized for individuals 18 years or older.
