The initial allotment of pediatric COVID vaccine in Washington State was sent to large, mass vaccination sites and hospital systems as well as some pharmacies. We do not have any in our office yet, although we have placed an order and are hoping to be able to help vaccinate our patients here in our clinic soon. If you are able to get your child vaccinated now, we encourage you to do so.
We recommend our families consider appointments through UW Medicine, where you can place your family on a waitlist now and will receive a text alert to schedule the vaccine appointment. Valley Medical Center has also received doses of the pediatric COVID vaccine. Other locations to find appointments would include Seattle Children’s Hospital and on the Washington Department of Health Vaccine Locator.
Once we receive a supply of the pediatric COVID vaccine for ages 5-11years old we will announce it here.
