Now that the vaccine is approved, where can my child get vaccinated?
Children and families have many options for where to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, including:
- Pediatricians: Hundreds of pediatricians are administering COVID-19 vaccines across the State of Connecticut. However, not all pediatricians will have the COVID-19 vaccine, so if your child’s provider doesn’t offer the COVID-19 vaccine, please refer to one of the other options provided.
- Pharmacies: Hundreds of pharmacy locations are offering the COVID-19 vaccine to children, including many CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, and other pharmacy chains across the state as well as independent pharmacies. Pharmacies provide a safe, convenient, and easy location to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Pharmacies have rolled out specialized trainings for their pharmacist staff to provide vaccines for younger children.
- Other locations: In addition to the above, several health systems and local health departments will be offering COVID-19 vaccines for children aged 5–11.
