COVID-19 Vaccine

Who's Eligible?

Ages 12 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Alabama.

The Pfizer vaccine is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for ages 12 and older. Currently, our county health departments are giving the Moderna vaccine, which is authorized for ages 18 and older. Other providers, such as hospitals and some pharmacies, are giving the Pfizer vaccine. These other providers may also be offering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which is currently not authorized for those under 18 years of age. If you are 12-17 years of age, please check vaccinefinder.org or contact the provider to see which vaccine is offered before scheduling your appointment.
