Our office is offering COVID vaccine clinics for ages 5-11 in partnership with the Colorado Vaccines for All program. There is still availability for our Saturday December 18th clinic. Sign up instructions are below, the clinic will be at our Centennial office on the date listed. This can be for first or second dose of the COVID vaccine (ages 5-11). The scheduling process is not directly through our office, so we are unable to change any appointments made.

Due to the overwhelming response to our first COVID vaccine clinic, we are hosting another round of COVID vaccine clinics for ages 5-11 in partnership with the Colorado Vaccines for All program.
November 2nd, 2021 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that children 5 to 11 years old be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has expanded the Emergency Use Authorization of the Pfizer vaccine down to age 5 years.

We know many of our families have been awaiting approval of the COVID vaccine for their school age children. We anticipate final vaccine approval for ages 5-11 later this week by the ACIP and CDC. We are happy to be able to use the following links to schedule both first and second dose COVID vaccine appointments for your 5- 11 year old children.
