COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments Available to 6-Month to 5-Year-Olds
Cone Health will administer the vaccines at several pediatric offices.
Greensboro – The public can now schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for children 6 months to 5 years old through Cone Health.
The announcement comes as the FDA and CDC have approved a lower dosage of the vaccine for this age group. The decision makes COVID-19 vaccines available to an additional 20 million children, according to the CDC. Children are eligible to receive either the two-shot Moderna or three-shot Pfizer series.
Parents and guardians should first check with their children’s pediatrician to see if the vaccine is available at their location.
