Where in Central Texas can you get a pediatric COVID-19 vaccine?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be shipping Pfizer’s pediatric COVID-19 vaccine to over 900 providers in 155 Texas counties over the next week. 

The CDC will deliver 1,010,700 doses of the vaccine to Texas vaccine providers and 349,200 doses will be delivered to pharmacies in the federal pharmacy program to vaccinate children between the ages of 5 and 11, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services

A list of providers receiving the pediatric vaccine is available on the DSHS website.

"Vaccinating children between the ages of 5 and 11 helps to protect all Texans from COVID-19," said Dr. John Hellerstedt, DSHS commissioner. "Twenty-two Texas children between the ages of 5 and 11 have died from complications of COVID-19 and 118 have been diagnosed with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children. The pediatric vaccine will further help reduce the spread of disease and prevent the rare but serious complications of COVID-19 in this age group."

There are approximately 2.9 million children ages 5 to 11 in Texas.
