What to bring

You will need to bring:

  • Identification with date of birth: state, tribe, or federal-issued ID. A billing or bank statement with your name and address can also be used.
  • Health insurance card. Let your provider know if you do not have insurance. Some clinics and pharmacies can provide COVID-19 vaccine at no cost.
  • Wear short sleeves or loose-fitting sleeves that are easy to roll up so that you can get vaccinated in your upper arm.
  • Authorized adult consent: If you are younger than 18 years old, you may need consent from an authorized adult to get the vaccine. You can consent for yourself if you are emancipated, married to an adult, or the vaccine site determines you are a mature minor. Not all vaccine sites are able to make mature minor determinations. If an authorized adult will not attend the vaccine appointment with you, check with your vaccine provider about requirements for showing proof of authorized adult consent or legal emancipation.
  • Your CDC vaccination card if you are getting a second dose or booster dose. The record of your new dose will be added to the card. If you do not have your card, check ahead with your vaccination site.

COVID-19 vaccine options

  • Everyone age 6 months and older is currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots. You can get vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax.
  • Note: Vaccination providers may not have every brand available.

Vaccines for immunocompromised people

CDC recommends that anyone ages 6 months and older who have moderately or severely weakened immune systems (immunocompromised) get a third dose of vaccine. The third shot is part of their initial vaccine series, not a booster.

Immune compromised children and adults should also get booster doses when eligible.

Cost of vaccine

Most insurance will cover the entire cost of COVID-19 vaccine, including Medicare and Medicaid/CHIP (“Apple Health”). Anyone with insurance is required to provide your insurance information to the vaccine provider. (This is a change since the public health emergency declaration ended.) Please bring your insurance information to your appointment. Some health insurance plans may charge a co-pay for vaccinations received out of network. Please contact your insurance company for more information.

Uninsured and underinsured adults can get COVID-19 vaccine at no cost from:

Children aged 18 and younger can get COVID-19 vaccine at no cost from:
