Health Care District Rolls Out COVID-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5 through 11

Starting tomorrow, the Health Care District of Palm Beach County will provide free, walk-up access to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 pediatric dose vaccine as authorized by the FDA and approved by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for children ages 5 through 11. The pediatric dose of the vaccine, which is one-third the strength of the vaccine formulated for individuals ages 12 and older, will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays at the Health Care District’s mobile clinic in the Lantana Clinic parking lot at 1250 Southwinds Drive in Lantana. Another Health Care District mobile clinic will offer the pediatric-dose vaccines in partnership with the School District of Palm Beach County at public elementary schools and other School District sites. No appointments are needed.

“Today we received pediatric doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine so we can start vaccinating children ages 5 through 11 starting tomorrow morning,” said Belma Andrić, MD, MPH, the Health Care District’s Chief Medical Officer. “It’s an exciting time as this is one of the final major milestones in our vaccination efforts countywide. Vaccinating young children will bring a sense of relief to many parents and we hope to make it easy and convenient for them. Although many children who contract the virus will easily recover, we cannot predict who will become very sick. According to the CDC, COVID-19 is the eighth-leading cause of death in this age group. The sooner parents vaccinate their children, the better.”

Children ages 5 through 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to be vaccinated. Here is the Health Care District’s upcoming COVID-19 vaccination schedule for children ages 5 to 11:
