The Pfizer COVID vaccine has EAU approval for children ages 5-11 years old. The vaccine is a 2 dose series with 3 weeks between the first and second dose.

This vaccine has been shown to be 91% effective at preventing symptomatic COVID 19 infections. No child that received the vaccine was hospitalized with a COVID-related illness.

The most common side effects were sore arm, fatigue, and fever/chills that generally lasted less than 24 hours. Overall these side effects were less common than those seen in adolescents. This vaccine is available by appointment at your 1 st Choice Healthcare clinic. Please call our clinics if you have questions or would like to schedule your child to receive the vaccine.
