CDC Approves Lower-Dose COVID-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5–11

On Nov. 2, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved emergency authorization for children ages 5–11 to receive a Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 in a two-shot series.

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) estimates there are 680,000 children in Washington eligible in that age group, and about 183,000 of them live in King County. State officials have said they expect about 30% of parents to seek the vaccines immediately and others to wait longer.

The University of Washington (UW) expected to begin vaccinations for children over the next few days and invited the public to phone 844-520-8700 to get on a call-back list to make an appointment. Harborview Medical Center is among the locations that will vaccinate children this week. 

Pharmacies and pediatrician’s offices and other clinics in the community were expected to begin administering the shots to children soon.
