10 AM – 1 PM, Sat., July 30, 2022, at Makowski School #99, 1095 Jefferson Ave.
The Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc. (CHCB, Inc.) will begin offering COVID-19 vaccination for young children 6 months through 4 years of age.
(This is in addition to ongoing COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots for ages 12 and up; and COVID-19 pediatric vaccinations for ages 5-11.)
The CHCB, Inc. “Young Children 6 Months Through 4 Years of Age Vaccination Clinic” will be held Sat., July 30, 2022, from 10 AM – 1 PM at Makowski School #99, 1095 Jefferson Ave., (Parking Lot) Buffalo, New York 14208.
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for young children 6 months through 4 years of age is a 3-dose series (each a tenth of the adult dose.)
The vaccine doses will be given as follows:
Dose 1 Dose 2 Dose 3
6 months – 4 years old 3-8 weeks after dose 1 At least 8 weeks after dose 2
According to HealthyChildren.org, the 3-dose vaccine (Pfizer) was first tested using 2 doses. Adding the third dose was found to be more effective at protecting babies and young children from the omicron variant that is the most common variant spreading in the United States right now. Children will have the highest degree of protection two weeks after they get the last required dose.
In addition, the COVID-19 vaccine may be given at the same time as other immunizations, so catching up on other vaccinations at the same visit is possible.
