  • Talk to your child in advance about the vaccine and what will happen at the appointment to ensure that he/she has a positive experience.
  • Please wear short sleeves as the vaccine will be administered in the arm. Bring warm clothes as there will be a 15 minutes observation period in an outside heated tent.

Valley View charges for the administration of the vaccine. There is no charge for the vaccine itself. If you have insurance, we will bill your insurance.  If you do not have insurance there is still no charge to get the vaccine.

Since the start of the pandemic, 1.9 million children ages 5 to 11 years in the United States have been infected with COVID-19 resulting in over 8,300 hospitalizations and 94 deaths. COVID-19 is now in the top 10 causes of death for children ages 5 to 11 years old nationwide.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to be over 90% effective in preventing symptomatic disease in this age group. The vaccine is 1/3 the dose of the vaccine for ages 12 and up and is given in two doses separated by three weeks. The most common side effects are pain at the injection site, fatigue and headache.

There are also many additional other community options to receive the vaccine. Please refer to your local public health website.
