Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccination

The FDA and CDC have taken all necessary steps to review and approve the use of a COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 - 11 years old. Contacting your family doctor or pediatrician is the most convenient way to get your child vaccinated. If you live in the Greater Portland area, we invite you to take advantage of our Community Vaccine Clinic at 110 Free Street in Portland.
