PHCA offers the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which has FDA and CDC authorization for ages 12 years and older.
The COVID-19 vaccine is available at previously scheduled office visits (such as a wellness visit). Patients can also schedule an appointment specifically to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccine doses will be administered inside the office in a private exam room. After a dose is administered, patients will need to remain on site for an observation period.
Please call your primary pediatrician's office for scheduling.
PHCA offers the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which has emergency authorization for ages 12 years and older.
The Pfizer vaccine is a series of two doses administered 21 days apart.
As a reminder, at PHCA we provide care for established patients through age 21.
The CDC has updated their guidance to allow COVID-19 vaccine to be administered at the same time as other routine vaccines.
Before additional COVID-19 vaccines are authorized for younger children, clinical trials need to be completed to ensure they are safe and effective for these age groups. Once the trials have been completed and the information is available, the ACIP will review it and make vaccine recommendations for younger children.
Our goal at PHCA is to keep families fully informed regarding the COVID-19 vaccine for children. We will continue to share information with our patients and families when a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available for younger children.
