COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility

Eligibility 

Anyone 12 and over is eligible for COVID-19 vaccine in Arizona.

People ages 12-17 who would like to get vaccinated must

  • Receive Pfizer vaccine (the only vaccine authorized by the FDA for 12 to 17-year-old people)
  • Have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian. Check with vaccination provider for specific requirements.

People age 18 and older can receive the Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson and Johnson (Janssen) vaccines.  

Vaccine Appointments and Events 

Vaccine appointments are now available through large vaccine sites, pharmacies, and other providers across Maricopa County. There is still limited vaccine supply, so if you do not find an appointment right away, please check back regularly.

Proof of Eligibility

When registering for your appointment, you may be asked a few questions to determine your eligibility and to provide insurance information, if available.  While you will not be charged anything to receive the vaccine, this information allows the vaccinator to bill your insurance for their administration fee.  If you do not have insurance, you can still make an appointment and will be charged nothing.

At your appointment, you may be asked to provide appropriate identification for proof of eligibility. This may include ID that shows your age or a form of ID confirming your employment, such as a work ID or paystub. Check with the provider or vaccination site about what is needed to bring to your appointment. 

Pop-Up Community Events

Free community vaccination events are also being held to bring vaccine to people in higher-risk communities, such as:

  • Areas with lower vaccination rates
  • Areas with more high-risk individuals 
  • People with higher risk of job-related exposure
  • Low-income housing where residents have transportation barriers

These "pop-up" events are open to anyone eligible for vaccination in the community.
