The CDC and ACIP have approved the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old (a two-dose series, three weeks apart, followed by a booster dose 5 months after this initial series). We are currently vaccinating patients in this age range in our office on Thursdays; please call to schedule an appointment. We also encourage families to take advantage of any opportunity to schedule a vaccination appointment through state and local health care organizations and agencies by visiting vaxfinder.mass.gov.
The physicians at Milton Pediatrics support the positions of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and an important part of the nation-wide strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have questions about the COVID vaccine, please visit our COVID-19 Vaccine Resource page for reliable, evidence-based information.
