Vaccine FAQs

  1. COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Criteria

    Florida continues to prioritize the state's most vulnerable populations for vaccinations, as determined by the Governor of Florida. Those eligible to receive the vaccine include:

    • Individuals age 18 and older
    • Individuals ages between 12 and 17* with parental or legal guardian consent and accompanied by parent or legal guardian at the time the vaccine is administered

    • *Minors age 12 and older and the Pfizer Vaccine

    • The Pfizer vaccine is available for individuals between 12 and 17 years of age
    • The parents and legal guardians of minors, who are 12 to 17 years old, must be present at the time the minor receives the Pfizer vaccine.
    • The consent form can be downloaded here in English or Spanish or obtained at the vaccine site. It must be completed and signed by the parent or legal guardian before the vaccine will be administered to the minor.
    • The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine that can be administered to minors 12 to 17 years of age. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are for ages 18 and over.
  2. Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?

    Per the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated:

    • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
    • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

    • If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.

  3. When You've Been Fully Vaccinated

    For now, here's what's changed and what hasn't changed according to the CDC. Want to learn more about these recommendations? Read the CDC's expanded Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People, corresponding Science Brief, and recommendations for healthcare providers.

  4. COVID-19 Vaccine Information

    According to the CDC, being vaccinated provides numerous benefits. It is also important to know that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensures vaccine quality, safety, and effectiveness. Before going online to search for vaccine information, make sure that you have identified credible sources that regularly update their information. The CDC offers guidance on how to find credible information. In addition, the Immunization Action Coalition offers valuable advice on evaluating online health information. The University of California San Francisco's Evaluating Health Information page lists red flags every consumer needs to know.

  5. Lost COVID-19 Vaccine Record Card

    If you lose your vaccination card or any record of it, return to the location that provided the vaccination if possible. If you do not have success at the location or if the location is no longer in operation, and you received the vaccine in Hillsborough County, contact the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County or call (813) 307-8000 and select "immunizations" option 3. Please be aware that it may take a while to research and process the request.


    Your primary care physician's office also should be able to look up the record of your immunization.
