The CDC, FDA, and AAP have made their official recommendations and the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine is now available to 12-15 year olds under the same Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) that is being used to distribute COVID Vaccines to adults! Maryland’s mass vaccination sites are now vaccinating all persons 12 and older. Visit covidvax.maryland.gov or call 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to schedule an appointment.
Our office does not yet have any COVID vaccine available, but we expect to get a shipment soon and will update this page as soon as we have more information.
In the meantime, please schedule through the state of Maryland (above) or look to your local health department, pharmacies, hospitals, or other vaccination sites for Pfizer vaccine doses for your 12-15 year old.
The Pfizer vaccine is an mRNA vaccine that has been studied and found to be safe and effective.
For more information on mRNA vaccines and how they work, check out these info sheets from the CDC or go to their website for more information.
As always, feel free to contact our office with any questions!
