Student COVID Vaccinations
In Washington State, children ages 12 years and older can now get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Pfizer vaccine was approved by the federal government on May 12, 2021 for expanded ages. The same day, the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup approved the Pfizer vaccine for expanded use in Washington state. This means you can schedule your children who are 12 and older for COVID-19 vaccination.
The Department of Health recommends eligible children get vaccinated against COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Parents/guardians can look for other eligible vaccine appointments for their children by going on https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/ and searching for vaccine locations in their area. Here are a few important notes:
- Children ages 12-17 can only get the Pfizer vaccine. The other two vaccines in the U.S. are only available for ages 18 and older.
- The Pfizer vaccine is given in two doses, spaced at least three weeks apart.
- Check with the vaccination site on how you will need to provide consent for vaccinating a minor.
- Follow the vaccination site rules for protecting yourself and others.
The Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective in adolescents 12 and up. Just like adults, children may experience some common side effects for 1 to 3 days after vaccination, including sore arm, tiredness, or headache. If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19 vaccination, we suggest talking with your health care provider.
