Kids 5+ Now Vaccine Eligible.
Why should children be vaccinated for COVID-19?
Vaccination will help protect your whole family. Getting the vaccine will help keep your child from getting seriously sick if they do get COVID-19, and help keep them from spreading COVID-19 to others.
- Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing serious illness caused by COVID-19.
- Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been shown to be about 91% effective in childrenages 5 to 11, and the CDC has recommended its use.
- Trials showed the vaccine was safe, well tolerated and produced a robustantibody response.
Eastern Plumas Health Care has now started a waiting list for parents with children ages 5+ who are interested in receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Put your child’s name on the waiting list by calling, 530-832-6562. Once the waiting list is complete, you will be notified and able to schedule an appointment at the Portola Medical Clinic.
