COVID-19 Vaccinations for 5- to 11-Year-Olds


Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine has been authorized for 5- to 11-year-olds. MCPS is partnering with the county's Department of Health and Human Services and Holy Cross Hospital to offer a number of free vaccination clinics for children at schools and county sites. Other family members who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination, or who need a Pfizer booster, will be able to do so at these clinics as well. 2/3 of the doses for children 5 to 11 will be provided by pharmacies, pediatricians and other healthcare providers and about 1/3 will be provided by the health department. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the numerous sources that are providing vaccinations.
