As the COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out, you may have questions. This page is intended to share the information that we have. As we are in the midst of the largest and fastest vaccination effort in history, information changes almost daily. We will work to keep you updated with the most up to date information as it is provided to us.
At this time, there are three vaccines Authorized for Emergency Use (EUA) by the FDA:
- Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine: 2 dose series
- Moderna’s mRNA vaccine: 2 dose series
- J & J’s viral vector vaccine: 1 dose
Maricopa County, in alignment with the State of Arizona, has opened vaccine eligibility to all persons, ages 12 and older.
At this time, those ages 12-17 may only receive the Pfizer vaccine. Those 18 and older may receive any of the three available vaccines.
