On October 29 the FDA granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer vaccine for children ages 5-11 years old. The CDC approved this on November 2 and we have begun scheduling appointments at our office. All the doctors at Foster City Pediatrics strongly recommend vaccinating children 5 years and up as it is the best way to overcome this pandemic. See AAP article here: https://www.aappublications.org/news/2021/11/02/cdc-pfizer-covid-vaccine-children-110221
Please call for an appointment as they are being scheduled on a first come, first serve basis as supply and staffing permits.
Since August, 2021 the FDA has granted EUA for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination for 12-15 year olds as well. Please speak to your child’s doctor if you have any concerns or questions about giving it to your child.
