COVID-19 Vaccine appointments available for 6-Month to 5-Year-OldsStaff Reports / July 1, 2022
The public can now schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for children ages 6 months to 5 years old through Cone Health.
The announcement comes as the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have approved a lower dosage of the vaccine for this age group. The decision makes COVID-19 vaccines available to an additional 20 million children, according to the CDC. Children are eligible to receive either the two-shot Moderna or three-shot Pfizer series.
Parents and guardians should first check with their children’s pediatrician to see if the vaccine is available at their location.
Cone Health will offer the vaccine to existing patients or any children in the community at four locations. Please contact these offices directly to schedule an appointment:
