The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 to 11 years old. Fenway Health welcome this news as we know that vaccines are the best way to keep people of all ages safe from COVID-19. This means that all people age 5 and older are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Starting Wednesday, November 10, 2021, Fenway Health will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to children ages 5-17.
COVID-19 vaccines for patients aged 5-17 will be available by appointment at our Ansin Building, 1340 Boylston Street location, 3rd floor. Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Children can also get vaccinated during their regularly scheduled medical office visits at our 1340 Boylston Street location.
The Fenway Health team is actively working on expanding pediatric COVID-19 vaccine availability at our other clinical sites and on evenings and Saturdays for improved convenience for our patients. We will send additional communication once this is available.
Please call 617.927.6000 to schedule an appointment for your child to get vaccinated.
Please note that parent or guardian consent will be required for all patients under 18 years old.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s healthcare team. Further information about the COVID-19 Vaccine for Children and Teens is available here.
