Vaccine Info for Children 5-11
When and where will you vaccinate children ages 5-11 year old?
When? Now! Click HERE to find available appointments at several community locations.
Where? We are offering appointments at multiple mobile clinics at public schools in Northampton and surrounding communities as well as at our steady location at the Elks Lodge in Florence. These will be available during after school time slots and on weekend days in November and December.
How? Links to appointments will be very obvious on this webpage as soon as possible.
What do I need? Just an appointment. The legal guardian consent is included in the appointment process. No insurance is needed.
What vaccine? The pediatric PfizerBioNTech vaccine that has been made available for children as of Nov 1, 2021! Yes, this is the same vaccine that local pediatricians are offering.
What about second doses?
Typically you will make it at the time of first appointment during your 15 minute wait afterward. Once the vaccinator logs the first dose into the computer system you will receive a text and email to schedule the second dose. The software will provide access to appointments 21 or more days in the future at the same site where you received your first dose. We encourage you to return to the same location for the second dose.
If you cannot return to the same location for the dose or perhaps you have another child whom you are trying to line up at the same location and same time, you will (unfortunately due to software limitation) need to start from the beginning to schedule your second dose -- use the purple button above.
Please note: Our apologies. We recognize that some folks were trying to get first doses as soon as possible and took any appointment at any of our sites even if it meant splitting up siblings onto different days. We know that it is easier to schedule sibs together for their second doses. The work-around above is our best option right now. We have given feedback to COLOR software and have requested a function change.
