Vaccination of Minors:

All individuals age 5 and older are eligible to receive a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.  NCDOH recommends that all minors be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Providers may accept a COVID-19 Immunization Screening and Consent Form completed by the parent or guardian, where the parent or guardian is not available in person or by phone to provide consent to vaccinate.  Look for the form under “Vaccination of Minors Ages 5 – 17 Years” here: www.niagaracounty.com/health/Vaccine  Unaccompanied minors should also bring ID/proof of date of birth (birth certificate, passport, learning permit/driver’s license, benefits care, etc.).
