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

Austin, Texas The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will ship Pfizer’s pediatric COVID-19 vaccine to more than 900 suppliers in 155 Texas counties in the coming week.

The CDC will supply 1,010,700 doses of the vaccine to vaccine providers in Texas, 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.

More than 400,000 doses of the vaccine have already arrived and 162,000 are expected to arrive today, with delivery of the full amount set to continue next week.

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

“Vaccinating children between the ages of 5 and 11 helps 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 from COVID-19, and 118 have been diagnosed with Childhood Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome. The pediatric vaccine will help further reduce the spread of disease and reduce 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.
