The FDA recently gave emergency approval to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 12 to 15. In response, we've expanded eligibility at UCSF to all UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals (BCH) patients ages 12 and older. Pfizer requires two doses and two appointments. When you get your first dose, we'll tell you how to schedule your second dose.
All BCH patients ages 12 and older, including county regional center clients and California Children's Services clients, may now be vaccinated at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland (walk-ins only), UCSF City College San Francisco (drive-through and walk-ins), and Fresno City College (drive-through).
Patients 12 to 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Each patient and their parent or caregiver will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. If either one has symptoms, the appointment must be rescheduled.
