Vaccine Location Update
It is now easier than ever to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Every adult is eligible to receive a vaccination and children as young as 16 are currently eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. (Pfizer may be approved for children 12-15 years old as soon as early next week).
In the past it was extremely difficult to book an appointment. Now that there is an increased supply of vaccines, many places are allowing people to just walk in without an appointment. President Biden announced yesterday two new ways to find vaccine sites in your area:
- Text your zip code to GETVAX (438829) for English or VACUNA (822862) for Spanish
- This will show the vaccine sites closest to you. I have attached a picture of what it looked like when I did this earlier today.
- There is also a new website, vaccines.gov
- It will ask for your zip code and will generate a list of vaccine sites.
It is extremely important that as many people as possible get vaccinated so that we can bring an end to this pandemic.
