Children's Vaccination Resources
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 to include children 6 months to 4 years of age via a 3-dose series. The vaccine formulation is a lower dose than previous formulations, at 3 micrograms of mRNA, compared to 30 for the adult dose. The FDA has also authorized the use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine for children ages 6 months through 5 years via a 2-dose series. The dosage is 25 micrograms of mRNA compared to 100 for the adult dose and 50 for the adult booster. The authorization was based on the FDA’s thorough and transparent evaluation of the data that included input from independent advisory committee experts. See the Pediatric Pfizer Fact Sheet and the Pediatric Moderna Fact Sheets for more info.
At this time, the Pfizer vaccine is the only approved COVID-19 vaccine for ages 5 - 11 and is administered as a two-dose primary series, 3 weeks apart, but is a lower dose (10 micrograms) than that used for individuals 12 years of age and older (30 micrograms). See the Teen Pfizer Fact Sheet for more info. Moderna vaccine for children ages 6-17 will be reviewed by the FDA soon.
A parent or guardian must provide consent and children under 16 must be accompanied to the vaccination appointment by an adult.
Getting the Pediatric COVID Vaccine Video
Prior to getting your child vaccinated, parents and guardians are encouraged to watch this video with their children about the vaccination process to help them prepare for the experience.
Children and parents can also watch a virtual reading of local Fishers author Daisy Ramani's children's book, Miss Violet Vaccine, where readers follow the main character, Zoey, who is anxious about getting a vaccination.
