Travis County and APH will be offering Pfizer vaccines for children at dozens of times and locations in the Austin area for the next week. While not all clinics offer the Pfizer vaccine that children are authorized to take, all clinics will provide booster shots for people who meet the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's eligibility criteria, the release said. Appointments are not required, according to the county's web page listing vaccine events.
The school district hosted its first vaccine clinic with free shots available for children under the age of 12 at Northeast Early College High School on Nov. 4 following the vaccine’s approval for children as young as 5 from the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC, district spokesperson Eddie Villa said.
Austin ISD's next free clinic for children age 5 and up will be held in partnership with nonprofit Vax Together Austin on Nov. 13 at the Austin ISD Performing Arts Center at 1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd., Austin, according to the event description.
