Children of ages 12 to 17 can get vaccinated if accompanied by an adult. No appointment needed!

Children 12 and older are eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 after the FDA authorized its application for emergency use. The CDC has added that this vaccine is safe and extremely effective for this age group.

Vaccination sites across Seattle are now allowing the scheduling of appointments for vaccination for children from 12 to 17 years old. The Seattle Government website also specifies that making appointments beforehand is not necessary but might result in a faster vaccination experience. 

“You do not need an appointment to get vaccinated at the Lumen Field Event Center, in Rainier Beach, and West Seattle.”

They also stipulate that children under 18 must be accompanied by parents or legal guardians when they receive their first and second doses. However, they can get vaccinated in any center where they have the Pfizer-BioTech vaccine available, which requires the doses 21 days apart.


New advantages for vaccinated people are appearing throughout Seattle city, including free drinks, discounts and special seating areas in public events such as the Mariners baseball games.
