Wayne County is now offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations for kids aged 5-11 at county clinics.
The Wayne County Health Department has already received their first supply of Pfizer-BioNTech (Pfizer) COVID-19 pediatric vaccines, following approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the November 2nd recommendation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for Emergency Use Authorization.
Some Wayne County Public Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics started to administer vaccinations Thursday.
“Over the past several months, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of school-aged children being impacted by COVID-19,” said Melita Jordan, Director of Health, Human and Veteran Services. “We’re asking that everyone do their part to protect our communities and help reduce the continued spread of COVID-19.”
