Does my teenager need my consent to get vaccinated?

Yes. Anyone younger than 18 who wants to get vaccinated will need permission from a parent or guardian. Teenagers will need to either have a parent or guardian present or bring a signed note from a parent or guardian with them to the appointment. Teens will also need to bring proof of age like a driver’s license, state ID, or birth certificate.
