MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Vaccine appointments are now open for kids 12 to 15 years old who would like to be vaccinated.

Anyone under the age of 18 looking to get a vaccine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The city says the parent/guardian will be required to show ID and complete and sign a consent form for the child.

This comes as the FDA gave the Pfizer vaccine emergency use authorization on Monday. And the CDC board recommended the vaccine for those 12 and up.

The City of Memphis says appointments are available at all city sites. If you would like to schedule an appointment, visit https://covid19.memphistn.gov/.
