COVID-19 Vaccine Information & Registration


This site is updated daily.

UPDATE: Monday, Oct. 25, 8:30 a.m.

People who meet eligibility requirements can now get boosters shots for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The CDC decision from Oct. 21 also says that eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. For example, if you initially had two shots of Pfizer, you can switch to Moderna or J&J.

Eligibility

If you completed two doses of Pfizer or Moderna at least six months ago, you are eligible for a booster if you are:
If you initially received a J&J shot, boosters of any vaccine type are recommended for those who are 18 and over and who were vaccinated at least two months ago.

Where can I get my booster?

All three vaccine booster types are widely available at pharmacies as well as Pima County sites and mobile clinics listed below. To search for locations and vaccine types at pharmacies, look on the AZDHS webpage or at vaccines.gov.

Who is eligible?

FAQs for 12- to 15-year-old vaccination

Why should kids 12 to 15 get vaccinated if they tend to not get as seriously sick from COVID-19?

Although children generally suffer milder illness from COVID-19 than adults, they may still suffer long-lasting, severe complications and even death if they do get the disease. Since there is no way to predict which children might become severely ill, getting vaccinated reduces their chances of serious complications.

Johns Hopkins pediatricians Anna Sick-Samuels and Allison Messina pointed out in a recent interview that vaccinating children is yet another step to getting the pandemic under control. Infected children can transmit the virus to others even if they themselves have no symptoms. The vaccine will help protect the people around them, including people who might be at higher risk for serious illness.

They suggest to parents, “Another reason to consider a COVID-19 vaccine for your child is to protect the health of the broader community. Each child or adult infected with the coronavirus provides a chance for the virus to mutate and create a variant that might prove more dangerous or resistant to the available vaccines and therapies. Fewer overall infections among the population means less chance of dangerous coronavirus variants.”

You can read more of their interview here.

Is the vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds the same as the dose for adults?

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be administered to 12-15 year olds as a series of two doses, three weeks apart, using the same dosage and dosing interval as for 16 years of age and older.

Learn more about the FDA’s expansion of the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to include 12-15 year olds.

What side effects can be expected in 12-15 year olds?

The side effects reported during clinical trials in adolescents aged 12-15 years were similar to those most commonly reported for participants 16 and older. These lasted from 1-3 days and included:
  • Pain at the injection site
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Fever or chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
These are all indications that the body is building protection against the virus. Except for injection site pain, more adolescents reported these side effects after the second dose than after the first. Not everyone experiences side effects, and an absence of side effects does not mean the vaccine is not working.

What studies were done to ensure the safety of vaccinating kids 12 and older?

Clinical studies using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for participants 12-15 were conducted and the data reviewed using the same stringent safety criteria and protocols as were followed in studies for participants 16 and up. In phase 3 trials with 2,260 US adolescents aged 12-15, the vaccine was found to be well-tolerated and effective, and Pfizer reported very strong protective antibody responses in this age group.

Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock commented “Parents and guardians can rest assured that the agency undertook a rigorous and thorough review of all available data, as we have with all of our COVID-19 vaccine emergency use authorizations.”

Learn more about the rigorous safety standards that must be met for the FDA to grant Emergency Use Authorizations for COVID-19 vaccines.

Should a child reach a certain weight before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

Because the COVID-19 vaccines are age-based and not weight-based, a child is not required to achieve a certain weight before being vaccinated. Vaccines work differently in the body than medications, which is why often the same vaccine dosage can be given to different age groups.

If you have other questions about the vaccine, registration, eligibility, and more, please see the COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs.


Recent FAQ

Do fully vaccinated people still need to quarantine after exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19?


People are considered fully vaccinated if it has been:
  • 2 weeks after the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine series, like Pfizer or Moderna, or
  • 2 weeks after the single dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson
Fully vaccinated people without symptoms do not need to quarantine, but the CDC recommends that they receive a COVID-19 test 3-5 days after exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, and they should continue to wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until they receive a negative test result. They should also watch for symptoms for 2 weeks following an exposure.

A fully vaccinated person who receives a positive test result, or later develops COVID-19 symptoms, should isolate themselves from others and be evaluated for COVID-19 by a healthcare provider.
