Walgreens is offering Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccines to children ages 5 to 11 following the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization and new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for this age group. This recommendation comes as children are at least as likely to be infected with COVID-19 as adults are and they also are at risk of developing serious illness. As many families travel to gather for the winter holidays and COVID-19 variants emerge, people are at high risk of contracting and spreading the virus and suffering more severe symptoms.
Parents or legal guardians can schedule appointments for their children at www.walgreens.com/schedulevaccine. Parents and guardians also can schedule these appointments through the Walgreens app or by calling 1-800-925-4733.
