Children will be offered vaccines only after the vaccine is tested and authorized by FDA for use in children. At this time, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized for ages 16 and up, and the Moderna vaccine is authorized for ages 18 and up.
When are teens 16 and up eligible to receive the COVID vaccine?
Please know we are committed to vaccinating as many people as possible, though our vaccination plans need to be flexible due to the uncertainty of vaccine supply. We are working closely with local health districts and the Virginia Department of Health to hopefully secure more vaccine supply over the next few weeks and months. We appreciate your patience and understanding of this process.
