Vaccine Approved for 5-11 Year-Olds - Resources and How-to Upload Vaccine Card to Magnus
On Tuesday, the CDC approved the pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11 after FDA authorization last week. Find a vaccine your child by visiting Vaccines.gov and be sure to reach out to your child’s healthcare provider with any questions. Headwaters strongly recommends the vaccine for all eligible people!
Find out more about how to find an APH vaccine clinic starting next week and more resources below. We also have directions on how to update your Magnus records, too. Please note, for the foreseeable future, we will continue to ask for the Magnus COVID-19 Screening to be completed each morning for all students.
Vaccine Clinics Austin Public Health is also offering walk-up clinics (meaning no appointment necessary) for children ages 5-11 at the Delco Activity Center, Old Sims Elementary, and Pflugerville Library.
We also encourage parents to direct questions to your child's healthcare provider.
