COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccine for Pediatric Population Ages 5-11

Children ages 5-11 are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine approved for this age group as a two-dose primary series, given 21 days apart.

Children with moderate to severe immunocompromised conditions have a different vaccine schedule. Children with immunocompromised conditions receive a three-dose primary series with the third dose administered no earlier than 28 days following receipt of the 2nd dose. A booster dose is not offered for this population
