Public Health now giving COVID-19 vaccines for young children

As of June 18th, the CDC now recommends that all children 6 months through 5 years of age should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Parents and caregivers can now get their children 6 months through 5 years of age vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines to better protect them from COVID-19. Both vaccines are a smaller dose than the adult vaccines. All children, including children who have already had COVID-19, should get vaccinated.

Pleasant) on Thursdays 6/30, 7/14, and 7/28 from 9am-3:30pm, and on Thursdays 7/7 and 7/21 from 9am-5:30pm.
