COVID-19 Vaccines for ages 5-11

On November 2, the CDC endorsed the recommendation that children ages 5-11 years old be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine. This authorization, which allows for about 28 million children in the US to receive the pediatric vaccine and be better protected, comes at a critical time as we head into winter months.

FCPH has started offering children (ages 5-11) appointments during our weekly clinics at the Mid-Ohio Food Collective in Grove City. Please note, for ages 5-11, appointments are required. View the calendar below to see dates and to make an appointment.
