What to Bring to Your Vaccination 

Individuals must be 12 years of age or older at the time of vaccination. 

Most people will need to bring these to the vaccination site:

  • Photo ID (e.g., school or work ID, membership card); AND
  • Proof of age (something that shows date of birth)
    • Documentation examples: Birth certificate, passport, and Provisional Driver's Permit (Learner's Permit)

 

Eligible Minors (12-17 Years Old)

Items required at the time of vaccination depend on a person’s age. For minors (12-17 years old), requirements will vary based on whether or not an adult (18 years and older) will be present when they receive the vaccine.

COVID-19 Vaccinations - Adults (18 years and older)

  • Must be 18 years old at the time of vaccination to be considered an adult
  • Must show photo ID (e.g., school or work ID, membership card) AND proof of age (something that shows date of birth)
    • Documentation examples: Birth certificate, passport, Provisional Driver's Permit (Learner's Permit)

 

COVID-19 Vaccinations - Minors (12-17 years old)

  • Individuals younger than 18 can only receive the Pfizer-BioNTech (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • All eligible minors may visit a vaccination site without an appointment and without bringing any documentation (photo ID and proof of age) IF a parent, legal guardian, or relative caregiver is with them at the site.
  • If a minor will not have an adult present with them at the vaccination site, an appointment needs to be made AND their parent or legal guardian will need to complete the Consent Form for Minors to provide their consent in advance. Parental consent is required for all eligible minors to be vaccinated.
