On Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control authorized emergency use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 to 11 years. The vaccine for children is packaged differently than the vaccine for adults and the two cannot be used for the other age group. The government has started distributing the vaccine for children, but it has not reached all providers. Waverly Health Center has received an initial supply and will be setting up several opportunities in the next two weeks to provide the vaccine. Please contact your child’s primary care provider later next week to set up an appointment. WHC will also use social media to promote opportunities that are being offered.
