Children 5 to 11 Now Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted November 2, 2021 to recommend Pfizer’s Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine for those 5-11 years of age under the Emergency Use Authorization. The CDC director has also approved ACIP’s recommendations.

Floyd Valley Community Health will begin administering the pediatric Pfizer vaccine to children 5-11 years of age once vaccine shipments have been received. Appointments will be required and can be made by calling (712) 546-3335.

Effective immediately, CDC recommends:

  • A two-dose, primary vaccination series for everyone ages 5 years and older, regardless of a history of COVID positivity.
  • COVID-19 vaccines may be administered simultaneous with other vaccines on the same day.
