Where can kids get a COVID vaccine?

Pediatricians and other experts answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Pediatrician Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH lists some of the places parents can expect to find the COVID-19 vaccine for their children.
So, there are a number of sites you could choose from. Some parents prefer to go to their pediatrician or their regular provider. And, so, you can reach out to your provider if they haven’t already reached out to you to schedule an appointment, to learn more about the vaccines, or to get your child vaccinated, but you can also go to community sites. Many schools will be offering the vaccine, pharmacies in your neighborhood are likely offering the vaccine to kids 5-11, and other community sites like churches.
