The Florida Department of Health said it will allow 16 and 17-year-olds to receive the Pfizer vaccine when eligibility expands to all adults next month.

The state said 16 and 17-year-olds will need to have a form signed by their parents to authorize them to get the shot, or be accompanied by a parent to the vaccine site.

The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine approved for teenagers.
