First dose eligibility

Anyone age 5 and older who has not received the first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine. (Individuals must have already had their 5th birthday before the date of their appointment to be eligible.) 

  • Residents ages 5-11 will receive the pediatric Pfizer vaccine
  • Residents ages 12-29 years old will receive the Pfizer vaccine as recommended by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (while supplies last).

Second dose eligibility

Anyone age 5 and older who received a first dose of a Pfizer vaccine at least 21 days ago or a first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine a minimum of 28 days ago.

To provide the strongest possible protection, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends waiting eight weeks between the first and second dose. This is based on evidence that suggests longer intervals between doses results in a stronger immune response and higher vaccine effectiveness that is expected to last longer.

  • Residents ages 5-11 will receive the pediatric Pfizer vaccine
