NEW! The COVID-19 vaccine is now available at PHCA for ages 5-11 years. Please see below for details.
To help meet the needs of our younger patients in a timely manner, PHCA will hold Saturday vaccine clinics at select locations starting Saturday, November 13.
These clinics will be held through mid-December, and appointments must be scheduled in advance. PHCA patients from all offices can receive the vaccine at these clinics.
What You Need to Know:
Note: Starting in mid-November, we may be able to give the vaccine at previously scheduled weekday office visits (such as a wellness visit). If you would like your child to receive the vaccine at an upcoming scheduled visit, please let your office know in advance.
PHCA offers the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines, which have emergency authorization for ages 5-11 years and ages 12 years and older.
Each vaccine is a series of two doses administered 21 days apart.
Note: Some children may be 11 years old when they get their first dose and 12 at the time of their second dose. They should receive a dose based on their age on the day of vaccination, according to the CDC.
CDC guidance supports the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as other routine vaccines.
Additional vaccines will be available at our Saturday clinics, including the current seasonal flu vaccine.
