COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Update for Children Ages 5 – 11 Years
Posted May 27, 2022
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends, a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster dose for those children ages 5 – 11 years who completed a primary series of the COVID-19 vaccine at least five months ago. Those who are immunocompromised are eligible if they received their final COVID-19 vaccine at least three months ago.
Johns Hopkins Medicine will offer this booster to newly eligible children starting Friday, May 27, 2022.
