Local Vaccine & Testing Information
Everyone 12 and over is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
Use this tool to find a provider so you can schedule an appointment to take your shot. It may require a bit of patience to get an appointment near you.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Vaccinations are free for everyone (with or without insurance).
- You don’t need to show ID. Everyone can be vaccinated, regardless of their immigration status. Getting vaccinated will not affect your immigration status.
