Anyone 12 years and older can get the vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine is available to all people 12 and older. People ages 12 to 17 can only get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Visit to find and schedule an appointment. You can also call 1-800-525-0127, then press #. For interpretive services, say your language when the call is answered.
It is your choice to get the vaccine. If you decide to get it, you should tell your vaccine provider if you:
  • Have a history of severe allergic reactions
  • Have a fever
  • Have a bleeding disorder or take blood thinners
  • Are immunocompromised or are on a medicine that affects your immune system
  • Are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are lactating
  • Have received another COVID-19 vaccine
You should not get the vaccine if you have had a serious allergic reaction to a previous dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or to any ingredient in the vaccine.

The vaccines contain the active ingredient, messenger RNA (mRNA) or adenovirus, along with fat, salts, and sugars to protect the vaccine and help it work better in the body.

You must be at least 12 years old to get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 18 years old to get the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
It is common to have side effects one or three days after getting the vaccine. Common side effects are tiredness, muscle pain, pain in your arm where you got your shot, fever, headache, join pain, chills, nausea, or vomiting. If your symptoms don’t go away, contact your doctor or clinic.

You should wait 15 to 30 minutes before leaving the vaccine site so your vaccine provider can help you if you do have an allergic reaction or other side effects. While you wait, you can sign up for vsafe to report any side effects:

You or your vaccine provider can also report side effects to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS):

Call 911 if you have an allergic reaction after leaving the clinic. Signs of an allergic reaction include: difficulty breathing, swelling of your face and throat, fast heartbeat, a bad rash all over your body, dizziness, and weakness.
Yes, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends anyone who previously had COVID-19 to get the vaccine.

Data shows it is uncommon to be re-infected with COVID-19 in the 90 days after you were infected, so you might have some protection (called natural immunity). However, we don’t know how long natural immunity might last.

People who currently have COVID-19 should wait to get vaccinated until they feel better and their isolation period is finished, if possible.

People who were recently exposed to COVID-19 should also wait to get the vaccine until after their quarantine period, if they can safely quarantine away from other people. If there is a high risk they could infect others, they may be vaccinated during their quarantine period to prevent spreading the disease.
The vaccines are safe and effective.
The vaccines are very effective at preventing COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the vaccines for emergency use and found no serious safety concerns.


People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
There are many options in King County to get a COVID-19 test:

• Start with your healthcare provider. If you have health insurance, schedule a test with your doctor. If you have symptoms or a known exposure, your healthcare provider is required by law to get you a test.
• Free testing sites operated by King County – These locations are open to anyone and offer free COVID-19 testing regardless of immigration or insurance status. Advance appointments are strongly recommended to avoid long wait times or being turned away.
