First Shipment of the COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids 5 to 11 Arrives at Cook Children’s
The first shipment of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11 has arrived at Cook Children’s Medical Center. This morning, the health care system received enough doses to vaccinate more than 3,000 children. Cook Children's will soon announce the details of vaccination clinics which will be held for Cook Children's patients with an existing MyCookChildren’s account.
Cook Children's patient families will be contacted directly via email.
There is no need for families to call their pediatricians to make appointments. All scheduling will occur through their MyCookChildren’s account and details, including the schedule for the vaccination clinics, will be posted on CookChildrens.org.
