Effective April 15th, all persons 16 and older in LA County are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.
By News Desk
Currently, only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for those 16 & 17 years old. For those who are 16 or 17, it will be important when making an appointment to select a location where the Pfizer vaccine is offered:
- The type of vaccine offered is noted for each vaccine site.
- Persons under the age of 18 will need to have parental consent to receive their vaccination.
Not available for under 16
The vaccines are not yet available for children and adolescents under 16. Studies are currently underway to assess the safety and effectiveness in this age group, and we look forward to the results in the coming months.
Let’s get vaccinated
All persons getting a vaccination will need to provide identification (government ID not required) and proof that they live or work within LA County at their appointment. Immigration status is not required and will not be asked for at any vaccination site. All forms of acceptable documentation are available at vaccinateLACounty.com.
Vaccination appointments are now available for anyone 16 and older on MyTurn.ca.gov.
