COVID-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5 to 17: Update From Johns Hopkins Medicine

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends children ages 5 and older receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Johns Hopkins Medicine encourages all families with eligible children to get the appropriate COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Children ages 5–11 years can receive the Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine (10mcg dose).
  • Adolescents 12 and older can receive the Pfizer adult COVID-19 vaccine (30mcg dose).

Doses are based on age, not weight.

Below are resources to help you find a vaccination site for your child. Please use all available resources to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

1. Visit a Johns Hopkins Medicine walk-up mobile vaccination clinic.

Johns Hopkins Medicine hosts several mobile vaccination clinics throughout the state of Maryland. These clinics offer vaccinations to all eligible individuals. Walk-ups are encouraged; no appointment is necessary. No ID is required and vaccination is free.

2. Find local and state vaccination sites.

The Maryland State COVID Vaccine Location, a joint operation by the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine, is now open and offering pediatric vaccinations by appointment only. Retail pharmacies and local and state sites offer vaccination and booster appointments. Some locations may offer walk-up vaccination times.

In Florida, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital offers dose one of the COVID-19 vaccine to inpatients age 12 and older. We are also offering the pediatric vaccine to children ages 5-11 in the General Pediatrics Clinic and inpatient settings. Please visit Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital COVID-19 page for the latest information.

Families of pediatric patients in the Washington, D.C., area can find information about adolescent and pediatric vaccination from the DC government vaccination page.

3. Schedule a vaccination at a Johns Hopkins Medicine hospital or practice. Appointments are limited.

Johns Hopkins Medicine will have extremely limited pediatric vaccination appointments at some of our locations. Appointments are required and can be scheduled online through MyChart, or by calling 443-997-1875 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Certain practices will only offer vaccination appointments to their current pediatric patients. Parents of children ages 5–12 years should use the parent’s MyChart account to schedule a pediatric vaccination. Adolescents ages 13–17 years should use the adolescent’s MyChart account to schedule a vaccination. Follow these steps to schedule a vaccination in MyChart. If you or your child do not have MyChart, you can sign up and request access to your child’s records.

If you have additional questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, speak to your child’s pediatrician or provider.

Important reminder: Both the pediatric and the adult Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines require a second shot three weeks after the first dose. Talk to the vaccination clinic to make sure your child can receive the second shot three weeks after your child’s first shot.

Pediatric patients ages 5–12 years: Use the parent’s MyChart account to follow the below steps and schedule a pediatric vaccination.
