It’s Easy To Make A COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment For Your Kids in MA
Now that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has given the go-ahead for children as young as 5 years old to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, Governor Charlie Baker's administration today outlined how families can access Pfizer COVID-19 pediatric vaccines for children ages 5 to 11 here in Massachusetts.
The vaccine will be widely available...
Children ages 5 to 11 will be able to receive the Pfizer Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine from more than 500 locations, ranging from retail pharmacies, primary care practices, regional collaboratives, local boards of health, community health centers, hospital systems, state-supported vaccination sites, and mobile clinics.
Three easy ways to find a Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine appointment:
Getting your child scheduled for an appointment to receive a pediatric COVID-19 vaccine doesn't need to be difficult. In fact, it's quite easy. Here is some information from the Governor's office on how to schedule your child appointment.
- Parents who prefer to have their child vaccinated by their primary care provider should call their provider’s office directly.
- Visit the VaxFinder tool at vaxfinder.mass.gov for a full list of hundreds of available locations. Residents will be able to narrow results to search for locations that are offering the Pfizer Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine, with some appointments available now for booking. Additional appointments will be available online in the coming days. Many locations will be booking appointments out weeks in advance.
- For individuals who are unable to use VaxFinder, or have difficulty accessing the internet, the COVID-19 Vaccine Resource Line (Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 6 PM, Saturday and Sunday 9 AM – 2 PM) is available by calling 2-1-1. The COVID-19 Vaccine Resource Line is available in English and Spanish and has translators available in approximately 100 additional languages.
