People in North Carolina ages 12 and up are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine

The FDA and CDC have authorized the use of the Pfizer vaccine for younger teens – those between 12 and 15 – based on a review of safety and effectiveness data from clinical trials in the United States.

Young people are vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus, just like everyone else. In North Carolina, close to 123,000 children 0 to 17 years old have tested positive for COVID-19 and the percent of COVID-19 cases that are in children 17 and under has been increasing.

You can find participating vaccine providers at MySpot.nc.gov. Filter for Pfizer to find locations that have vaccine for people under 18. The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine available to those between the ages of 12-17.
