Following high demand Saturday at its mobile clinic vaccination event for children, the Health Care District of Palm BeachCounty reminds parents and guardians that free, walk-up access to the pediatric dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays outside the Health Care District’s Lantana Clinic at 1250 Southwinds Drive in Lantana. Yesterday, the Health Care District’s mobile clinic team provided over 200 pediatric doses during a five-hour period at the School District of Palm Beach County’s headquarters in West Palm Beach. 

“We’d like to remind the community that our mobile unit in the parking lot of our Lantana Clinic is a convenient site during the week for children as young as five to be vaccinated against COVID-19,” said Belma Andrić, MD, MPH, the Health Care District’s Chief Medical Officer. “No appointment is necessary so families can stop by during the day and know the vaccine is available for them and their children.”

The pediatric dose is one-third the strength of the vaccine formulated for individuals ages 12 and older and is authorized by the FDA and approved by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for children ages 5 through 11.  According to the CDC, COVID-19 is the eighth-leading cause of death among this young age group.
