People can choose which vaccine (Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson) they would prefer. Johnson & Johnson is a one-dose vaccine approved for individuals 18 and older; Pfizer is a two-dose vaccine approved for anyone older than 12. Young people are allowed to get the vaccine at a public health site without a parent or guardian present, per N.C. law that allows minors with decisional capacity to consent to medical services for the treatment and prevention of communicable diseases.

So we continue to urge our community to take advantage of the convenient ways to get vaccinated and put an end to this pandemic.”
