BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Starting at 8:15 a.m. Thursday, children ages 12 to 15 years old can sign up for their COVID-19 vaccination in Vermont.

This comes after the CDC approved the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday.

You can make an appointment on the Vermont Department of Health’s website or call 855-722-7878. Parental or caregiver consent is required and can be given as part of the online registration process or in person.

The state says 40 schools will serve as vaccination sites.


Children can also register in New Hampshire starting Thursday morning.

Gov. Chris Sununu says parents and guardians will need to give consent to anyone under 18 and they must be onsite at the time of the vaccination.

Written consent can also be filled out by the adult onsite or online. Same-day appointments are available at some clinics.


In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says teens can also get vaccinated as early as Thursday.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Wednesday after the state’s vaccine advisory task force and state health commissioner reviewed safety data.
