KCHD is offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for people 6 months and older. The CDC recommends:
5 Years and Older: 2 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech in the primary series, given 3–8 weeks apart. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system) should get a 3rd dose at least 4 weeks after their 2nd dose in the primary series.
6 months through 4 years: 3 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech in the primary series. The first and second doses are separated by three to eight weeks and the second and third doses are separated by at least eight weeks. For people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system), the first and second doses are separated by three weeks, and the second and third doses are separated by at least eight weeks.
If you have questions or concerns, we encourage parents to reach out to their child's pediatrician as they know their child's medical history the best.
