Covid 19 vaccine for ages 6 months-4 years

At long last, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized for emergency use two COVID-19 vaccines for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

The FDA gave the green light on June 17 to both the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (for children 6 months to 4 years old) and the Moderna vaccine (for children 6 months to 5 years old).

We have had an amazing vaccine rollout and have so far vaccinated close to 100 children ages 6 months to age 4!

 West End Pediatrics supports your family’s decision to receive either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine. At the moment we are offering the Moderna vaccine.

At this time, we anticipate continuing to offer the Pfizer COVID vaccine to all patients 5 years and older because it is the only vaccine that has an approved booster dose.  Additionally, we plan to offer both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to children 6 months – 4 years.

While we expect to have enough vaccines to vaccinate all our patients, there are some limitations on how many daily dosages we can offer in our office.  Please call or email us to schedule an appointment.
