COVID-19 Vaccine Information
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has received Emergency Use Authorization and is being recommended for all persons age 12 and over. We will be holding vaccination clinics on specific days. Since the vials are multidose and need to be used within 6 hours of opening, we will need to coordinate appointments to insure there all the doses are used. Please call the office if you would like your child to be scheduled.
