As of today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to include individuals 12 through 15 years of age. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not yet passed their approval. The CDC is expected to meet later this week to make their determination.
At this time, we are preparing for future COVID vaccination clinics to meet your needs for booster doses. However, we currently are not scheduling these booster vaccinations for patients 12 to 15 years of age. Please join our COVID-19 12-15 Year Old Booster Waitlist and we will contact you as soon as clinics and doses become available.
Additionally, our phone lines are very busy during this time due to increased levels of flu, COVID, and other respiratory illnesses in children. Our team is answering and returning phone calls as quickly as we can, but you may experience delays. The patient portal is a great place to schedule and send messages for non-urgent needs. Otherwise, we will be with you as quickly as well can. Thank you for your patience and grace.
