FOR THOSE 12-PLUS, VACCINE APPOINTMENTS NOW AVAILABLE IN BERKELEY
Sign up online to reserve a dose for yourself, your family

Berkeley, California (Thursday, May 13, 2021) - Parents or guardians can now sign up for COVID-19 vaccine appointments for kids at least 12-years-old, who’ll be able to get shots starting Thursday in Berkeley and throughout the region.

The City of Berkeley coordinates two sites that this week are using the Pfizer vaccine approved for those 12 and over:

1 Buchanan Street, Albany
May 12-15. 9am-5pm.

  • Reserve a spot through MyTurn: complete eligibility information, then scroll down the "select location" page until you see "Buchanan St Parking Lot (next to Albany Bulb)."
  • A parent or guardian will need to accompany their child to the appointment.

Civic Center Park, behind 2180 Milvia St.
May 13-14. 10:30am-6:30pm.

  • Create a free Carbon Health account and reserve a spot.
  • Those under 18 need parent or guardian permission via signed consent form ( see sample), in-person consent at vaccination, or via a phone call. Patients ages 12-15 must be accompanied by a responsible adult before, during, and after their appointment 
  • Note: Appointments for 12-15 year olds are drop-in only at this time.

Drop-in availability depends on supply. Making an appointment is the best way to confirm a dose for yourself or your child.

MyTurn will also offer other locations, such as local pharmacies, supermarkets with pharmacies and other. Private healthcare providers like Kaiser, Sutter Health and Stanford Health Care now vaccinate both members and nonmembers.

If you don’t get an appointment, don’t worry. Supplies are now steady and appointments will continue to come quickly. There is a dose for everyone.

These safe, effective vaccines are an essential tool to protect you, your household and our community.
