Are you looking for a convenient location to vaccinate your children and members of your household? All children 5 to 11 years old are now able to receive the Pfizer pediatric vaccine. The Phoenix Elementary School District is hosting vaccination events in December. Vaccinations offered include Pfizer (5 & up), Moderna (2nd/3rd doses), Johnson & Johnson, and Booster Doses. Below are dates, times, and locations:
those who received their first dose at Herrera School on November 13, plan to attend any one of these vaccination events for your second dose.
According to the CDC, “Vaccination, along with other preventative measures, can protect children from COVID-19 using the safe and effective vaccines already recommended for use in adolescents and adults in the United States. Similar to what was seen in adult vaccine trials, vaccination was nearly 91 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 among children aged 5-11 years. Vaccine side effects were mild and similar to those seen in adults and with other vaccines recommended for children. The most common side effect was a sore arm.”
