Special cases

Vaccine types

You can get vaccinated with one of 3 brands: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen). 

If you are under 18, Pfizer is the only vaccine type approved for you. See more about getting vaccinated if you are under 18.

If you get either the Pfizer or the Moderna vaccine, you must get 2 doses to be fully vaccinated. If you get the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, you only need a single dose. 

All vaccine types are tested, safe, and highly effective.

People under 18

In general, people under 18 should get permission from a parent or guardian to be vaccinated against COVID-19, but can self-consent to vaccinations.

See vaccine resources for people under 18 for answers to common questions about the vaccine.

Second dose

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines need 2 doses. You should get your second dose as close to the recommended interval as possible:

  • Pfizer 3 weeks (21 days) apart
  • Moderna 4 weeks (28 days) apart

If this is not possible, you can get your second dose up to 6 weeks (42 days) after your first dose. Even if your second dose is delayed beyond 42 days, you should still get it. You will not have to restart the vaccine series.

If you get Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, we will schedule a time for your group to get their second doses. 

If anyone can't make the second dose, they should make sure they get the second dose somewhere else
