COVID-19 Vaccine Update: Children Ages 12-15

This message has been approved by Kyle Clark, Vice President for Finance & Administration

Florida State University is pleased to expand eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccination to dependents of Florida State University faculty, staff and current students. All students are eligible for the vaccine while they are studying with Florida State University, regardless of residency.

Per the Governor’s latest communications, we may now vaccinate all Floridians with any COVID-19 vaccine as prescribed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At this time, the University is administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which is approved for use in individuals 12 years of age and older. Please note, minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to receive the vaccine.

The next clinic for the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination will take place Tuesday, May 18.

You will find additional vaccine clinic dates and more information on how to create an account and register for your COVID-19 vaccines at Once you create your account, dependents 12 years of age and older may be registered by clicking on “Register Minors/Wards.” Multiple children may be registered one at a time, if needed.

Once your account is created with CDR Maguire and you select “Get Vaccinated”, you will be asked if you have an Entry Code. In order to access the FSU vaccine clinic and select your appointment time, you must enter the code FSU2021 to complete your registration.

The vaccine will be distributed within Florida Department of Health guidelines. Individuals are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider to discuss any questions before electing to be vaccinated. If you have any of the following conditions, please consider consulting with your current medical provider if you need guidance on COVID-19 vaccination for your specific situation:
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Compromised immune system (such as cancer or if you take certain immunosuppressive medications)
Some pre-existing medical conditions may exclude you from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. According to the CDC and public health professionals, there are times when you should defer vaccination for COVID-19:
  • If you have been given any other vaccine two weeks before getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You should also not have any other vaccine until more than two weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • History of severe COVID-19 illness and you were treated with COVID-19 antibodies within the past three months.
  • Currently, have a moderate or severe illness.
  • Recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 and have not yet recovered and been cleared from isolation.
  • Under quarantine as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • If you have a history of allergic reactions, you may still receive the COVID-19 vaccine as long as the allergy was not to a vaccine component. Clinical staff will monitor you after the vaccination for your safety.
Individuals who have the opportunity and would like to vaccinate outside the University are still encouraged to do so. Please remember to wear short sleeve clothing that can easily expose your arm on the day of your vaccination. You must bring a photo ID to your appointment.
