VACCINATION FOR CHILDREN AGES 5-11


The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now authorized and recommended for children ages 5-11.


Expert panels convened by the FDA, CDC, and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup all recommended the vaccine as safe and effective for children in this age group based on evidence from clinical trials. The FDA and Washington State Department of Health have authorized healthcare providers to begin vaccinating children ages 5-11. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccination for children and the Pfizer vaccine.


Please be aware that the Pfizer dose recommended for children 5-11 is different from the dose available for those 12 and older. Supplies may be limited at first. Please be patient as you seek an appointment for children in this age group. We recommend families start by contacting their child’s regular healthcare provider to find out if they are offering vaccination for this age group.

 

 

BOOSTER SHOTS AND THIRD DOSES


If you are 18 or older and fully vaccinated for COVID-19, an additional vaccine dose may be recommended to boost your immunity. Learn more and find out if you are eligible:
