Columbus Department of Health Holds Pediatric Vaccination Clinic, Children 5-11 Years Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – The Columbus Health Department is hosting a pediatric vaccination clinic the week of November 8. Children between the ages of five and eleven will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccine just before the holidays.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that children between the ages of five and eleven be immunized with the Pfizer pediatric vaccine. This extends vaccine recommendations to approximately 28 million children in the United States in this age group.
According to the CDC, similar to what has been seen in adult vaccine trials, vaccinations were nearly 91% effective in preventing COVID-19 in children in this age group.
The information for the Pediatric Vaccination Clinic is as follows:
