Covid-19 Vaccines

Vaccines for Adolescents and Children 5-11 years old

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with unanimous support from the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP),  recommends that children 5 to 11 years old be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine, made available by FDA Emergency Use Authorization. (Read more about Emergency Use Authorizations here.)

Appointments are available for children ages 5-11 years old on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Vaccine and Test Clinic at 4201 Bartlett Street. These appointments are for the first of a pediatric two dose series of Pfizer-BioNtech. A parent or guardian must be present at the appointment and sign the consent forms. The child should not come if they are experiencing any sudden or unexplained COVID-like symptoms, or if they have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19. An appointment for the second dose of this two dose series will be made during the time of the first visit. Scroll down to make an appointment

  • Anyone who is six months or more after their initial series of the Pfizer or Moderna series

Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some may have a preference for the vaccine type they originally received, while others may prefer to get a different booster.
