In Santa Barbara County, everyone age 16 or older is eligible to be vaccinated. Minors are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Those 18 and over have two other vaccine options: Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. After a short pause, Johnson & Johnson vaccine administration has resumed. The State of California has posted a FACT SHEET to assist California residents while choosing a vaccine.
