As of Nov. 2, 2021, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, now known as Comirnaty, has received EUA from the FDA and has been authorized by the CDC for use in children who are 5 to 11 years old. The CDC is now actively recommending that all children between the ages of 5 and 11 years receive the two-dose primary series of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine to reduce risk of severe illness or death. TPCA has received our first round of doses and immediately has begun vaccinating its pediatric patients and educating parents. Due to the different dose, we will hold separate clinics for this age group. You may contact your physician’s office to schedule an appointment and get more information about COVID-19 vaccines for your children. A parent or guardian must accompany a child to their vaccination appointment.
Additionally, we understand many of you are interested in obtaining a booster dose of your COVID-19 Vaccine. Booster doses are now recommended for everyone over the age of 18 who are fully vaccinated and after six months since receiving the second dose. We ask you reach out to your provider to see if you meet the criteria set forth by the CDC to receive a booster dose. To schedule your first dose, call Clinical Services or your provider’s office.
We will continue to update this webpage as we get more information. Please be assured we care about getting you and your family the vaccine as quickly and as safely as we can.
