Effective Thursday, May 13, Baptist Health has expanded eligibility for the two-dose Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to all residents 12 years of age or older. Those under 18 require a parent or guardian’s consent.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday, May 12, approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for anyone 12 and older. The approval followed expansion of the Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use authorization earlier in the week.

Walk-up vaccinations are administered for free on a first-come, first-served basis at clinics that Baptist Health has set up across the state. Available dates and times vary by location. Baptist Health also accepts vaccine appointments at these locations.
