Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccinations available for ages 5-11 at TJRH

By Stacey Biggs

T.J. Regional Health is now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 through 11 at the T.J. Health Pavilion in Glasgow. Appointments can be made by going online at TJRegionalHealth.org/vaccine.

The CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that all eligible children ages 5 and older get immunized against COVID-19 as soon as they can. At this time, the Pfizer vaccine is the only option currently authorized for children. It was found to give kids strong protection against COVID-19, including against the Delta variant.

Dr. Beth Brooks, a Pediatric Provider with T.J. Regional Health explained that, "The internet can be extremely helpful, but it also has a lot of misinformation regarding the vaccine for children. For reliable, evidence-based information, it's best to consult with your child's doctor."
