Dear Community Member,

We are thrilled to share that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is now approved for use in children and adults over the age of 12, and we encourage all our eligible community members to receive a vaccine.

USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, located at 1812 Verdugo Blvd, Glendale, CA 91208, has clinics scheduled for Saturday, May 15, Sunday, May 16, Wednesday, May 19, and Thursday, May 20. Appointments for children over 12 are available.

Please Note

  • The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine option available for individuals who are 12+.
  • The Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available for individuals who are 18+.
  • If you'd like to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, visit the LA County Department of Public Health vaccine site to read through facts and review frequently asked questions about the vaccine, which are available in multiple languages.

Additional Vaccine Resources

The following list contains information on scheduling vaccinations; some of these resources may still indicate that the vaccine is only available for individuals over 16 or 18 years of age while they are adapting to new federal, state, and county guidance.
