Children’s National Hospital Creates Coronavirus Vaccine Waitlist for Teens

Children’s National Hospital in D.C. now has a waitlist for eligible teens to receive the coronavirus vaccine.

Those 16 and 17 years old with qualifying chronic medical conditions are authorized to be placed on the waitlist for the two-shot vaccine manufactured by Pfizer/BioNTech, WTOP reported.

Eligible residents can complete the form online.

Once there are available doses, the resident will be prompted via text message to set up an appointment. In order for a teen to get a vaccination, a parent or legal guardian must be present and approve the process.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is currently the only one approved by the Food and Drug Administration for people 16 and older. Two other FDA-approved vaccines by Moderns and Johnson & Johnson are only for those 18 and older.
