Everyone age 16 and older is eligible for the covid-19 vaccine with the addition of Phase 2 starting 4/2/2021. Using the state vaccine website – www.vaccinefinder.org – is what we recommend to everyone who does not have an active MyChart account. Please note that people age 16-17 can only get the Pfizer vaccine. Age 18 and over can get any of the 3 vaccines. Please make sure you specify the correct vaccine when using vaccinefinder.org
Children’s Hospital is working on a platform that will allow patients with an active MyChart account to go directly to the Children’s website and sign up for a vaccine that will not require a referral from a physician/PA. This ability is not available currently and we do not know the roll out date for that yet. Check your MyChart messages as Children’s Hospital likely will contact you directly when you are able to schedule.
