The Oneida County Health Department will be administering COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year olds. Pfizer BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine was recently approved under emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for kids ages 5-11.

Through rigorous clinic trials, the CDC has confirmed that the vaccine is safe and effective for 5-11 year olds. Receiving a COVID-19 vaccination is one of the best ways to help protect children from severe COVID-19 illness and helps stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Vaccines are free of charge regardless of insurance status. Appointments are required and can be scheduled online at www.oneidacountypublichealth.org or by calling 715-401-4150. The child’s guardian must be present for the appointment. This vaccine clinic is only for 5-11 year olds.
