In anticipation of the expanded approval of the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine (2-dose series) for minors 12 to 15 years of age, we are now accepting pre-registrations only for this age group.
Once approved, for all minors between the ages of 12 and 15, a parent or guardian must complete the UT Health Austin Minor Consent Form (also available in Spanish) prior to receiving a Pfizer vaccination. The completed and signed consent form is required at the time of the vaccination appointment.
For all people between the ages of 16 and 17, a parent or guardian must complete the UT Health Austin Minor Consent Form (also available in Spanish) prior to receiving a vaccination. You are required to bring the completed and signed consent form with you to your vaccination appointment.
