    Child getting COVID-19 vaccinePima County vaccination sites have started offering a COVID-19 booster shot for children ages 5 through 11 who are at least five months removed from their second shot of the Pfizer vaccine.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved that booster recommendation on May 19, 2022.

    Pima County offers free COVID-19 shots at the following static locations:
    • Abrams Public Health Center, 3950 S. County Club Rd.
    • Theresa Lee Health Center, 1493 W. Commerce Court
    • North Clinic, 3550 N. 1st Ave.
    • East Clinic, 6920 E. Broadway Blvd.
    Check pima.gov/covid19vaccine for hours of operation and multiple mobile clinics each week that offer all the vaccines for ages 5 and up, as well as the boosters. Vaccine is available by appointment or by walk-in at the Theresa Lee, North and East clinics. No appointment needed at Abrams.

    Also, please check with local pharmacies and your health care provider for the availability of any of the COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

    Only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for those under 18 years old. Moderna is available as a booster dose to those 18 and older.

    The CDC now recommends a booster for anyone over 5 years old who completed their Pfizer or Moderna primary series at least five months ago, or are at least two months from a single dose of Johnson & Johnson.

    A second COVID-19 booster shot is also available for immunocompromised individuals and people over the age of 50 who received an initial booster dose at least four months ago.
