Anticipated Approval of the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5-11 years
Guidance from the Berrie Center

It is highly likely that the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine will be available in the coming weeks for children ages 5-11 years.  The Berrie Center recommends all patients in this age group receive the vaccine. This will not only protect the child but also reduce the spread of Covid-19 to others.  

If you have general questions regarding the vaccine, please contact your child's pediatrician. The Berrie Center will not be administering the vaccine. 

Also, please do not forget to get your flu shot which is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older. The Berrie Center does not provide flu shots. Again, please call your child's pediatrician for information on getting the flu shot.
