Children ages 12 to 15 can start getting Pfizer coronavirus vaccinations in the Bay Area and elsewhere in California starting Thursday.
State health officials on Wednesday announced parents could start scheduling Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine appointments starting Thursday for children 12 to 15. The announcement came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the use of the Pfizer vaccine for kids ages 12 to 15, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made the recommendation.
The two other vaccines available in the U.S., made by Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, have been authorized for use only in people 18 and older.
Here's how to get your child a COVID-19 vaccination in the Bay Area:
What you need
Children younger than 18 need consent from a parent or guardian to get a COVID-19 vaccine, according to state public health officials. That can be a signed form or verbal consent in person, over the phone or through FaceTime. You may also need some form of identification showing date of birth, which could include a birth certificate, student ID card, insurance card or school document like a report card. When you choose a site, be sure to check for its particular requirements.
