APP now offers pediatric COVID-19 vaccinations

Children 5 to 11 years old may get the vaccine as recommended by the CDC.

Share:

Earlier this month, the CDC recommended pediatric doses of the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old, following the FDA’s emergency use authorization.

The following clinics accepting appointments by phone or through MyChart:

APP–Family Medicine
2859 State St., Suite 101
Medford (541) 282-9500

APP–Pediatrics
560 Catalina Drive, Suite 100
Ashland (541) 201-4800

APP–Family Medicine
691 Murphy Road
Medford (541) 789-6460

The vaccine for children is administered as a two-dose series, three weeks apart. It’s a lower dose (10 micrograms) than what is used for people 12 years of age and older (30 micrograms). Pediatric vaccinations are available for Asante and non-Asante patients.

The vaccine’s safety was studied in approximately 3,100 children and no serious side effects have been detected in the ongoing study. If you have questions about the vaccine for children, contact your pediatrician or call the APP clinic directly.
