Ages 16 & 17 should be accompanied by parent/guardian to Centennial Hall vaccine clinic

March 17, 2021 – News

With COVID-19 vaccines now open to anyone 16 years or older, the City and Borough of Juneau encourages individuals age 16 and 17 to sign up for the Pfizer vaccine clinics at Centennial Hall. Many already have. Because this is a medical appointment, 16- and 17-year-olds are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the clinic.

Parents and guardians: If you are not able to go to Centennial Hall for your child’s vaccine appointment, email covidquestions@juneau.org ahead of the appointment time, and CBJ’s Emergency Operations Center will email you a permission slip that needs to be printed and signed for your kid to submit to their vaccinator at the clinic.

The Pfizer vaccine is currently authorized by the FDA for individuals age 16 and older, and the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for individuals 18 and older.

CBJ will soon be announcing details on an April clinic. For more information, email covidquestions@juneau.org.
