Covid-19 Vaccinations Available for 5-11 year-olds

Covid-19 Vaccinations Available for 5-11 year-olds
CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation that children 5 to 11 years old be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine. CDC now expands vaccine recommendations to about 28 million children in the United States in this age group and allows providers to begin vaccinating them as soon as possible.
COVID-19 vaccines have undergone – and will continue to undergo – the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. History.
Vaccinating children will help protect them from getting COVID-19 and therefore reduce their risk of severe disease, hospitalizations, or developing long-term COVID-19 complications. Getting your children vaccinated can help protect them against COVID-19, as well as reduce disruptions to in-person learning and activities by helping curb community transmission.
Distribution of pediatric vaccinations across the country has started, with plans to scale up to full capacity starting the week of November 8th. Vaccines will be available at thousands of pediatric healthcare provider offices, pharmacies, Federally Qualified Health Centers and more.
As a partner of the Canton Public School District, G.A. Carmichael Family Health Clinic is available to assist families in getting their children 5-11 vaccinated. Please call 601-521-9236 for more information.
