“Right now, we are providing Moderna at our clinics. The only thing you need to show is some proof that you’re 18 years of age or older,” Gardner says. She spoke during her public information briefing on Thursday.
Currently, only those 18 and older can receive the Moderna vaccine. “We do expect maybe next week to have another vaccine approved for younger folks, and we hope to be able to get that Pfizer vaccine. So stay tuned for an announcement on that,” Gardner says.
