The FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee met 10/26/21 and voted to recommend emergency use authorization for the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children ages 5-11 years old. There are several more steps in the process and we expect vaccines to be available to 5-11 year olds at some point in the next 1-2 weeks.
Vaccinating this age group in a timely manner will be a community effort involving our schools, hospital systems, pharmacies, King County, and local pediatricians. Renton Pediatric Associates is working hard to determine if we can provide vaccines to some of our patients and we appreciate your patience as we figure out the logistics. We will continue to update our website with information about where to get the vaccine as it becomes available over this next week.
