COVID-19 VACCINE

Who can get vaccinated at a pharmacy?
You can get vaccinated if you are age 18 or older in 2021 at select pharmacies in hot spots (to get the Moderna vaccine, you must be 18 or older on the day of your appointment) subject to vaccine availability.

Also note that COVID-19 vaccines will be administered based on your age or personal risk as mandated by Public Health in your area, and not on a first come first serve basis.
