Parental permission for COVID-19 vaccination

If you are 16 or 17 years old, it’s your own decision whether to get vaccinated. If you are younger than 16, this is a decision you should make together with your parents or guardian.

Whether you get vaccinated is up to you – even if you and your parents don’t agree

If you are 16 or 17 years old, it’s your own decision whether to get vaccinated against COVID 19. If you are younger than 16, this is a decision you should make together with your parents or guardian. If you and your parents just can’t agree, you have the final say about whether you get vaccinated.

Get help deciding

If you currently have an illness other than COVID 19 and are unsure if you can still get vaccinated, talk to your doctor.
