Ages 5 to 11 Pediatric Vaccinations
More than 850 Ohio children ages 5-11 have received the COVID-19 vaccine since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration gave final authorization of the pediatric dose last week.
Children may be vaccinated at many different types of providers, including local health departments, pediatricians, family physicians, community health centers, adult and children’s hospitals, and pharmacies. Parents should contact their provider to learn about vaccination opportunities or they can visit gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov to find a provider or make an appointment.
