Effective May 12th, 2021, Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is now approved for children 12 years and older! As your child’s healthcare provider, VIP Children’s Clinics strongly encourages you to consider vaccinating your child against COVID-19. Vaccines save lives and COVID-19 vaccination is one of THE most important strategies to move us ALL past the pandemic!
The CDC and experts at Vanderbilt University Medical Center both have great information available to help answer your questions and help educate you about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination:
Many area pharmacies and your local health department have availability and ease of scheduling through the vaccine finder website: www.vaccines.gov.
Also, Vanderbilt University Medical Center has availability for vaccinating children 12 years and older (locations are at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and One Hundred Oaks Mall): https://covid-vaccine.app.vumc.org/schedule/#/signin or call the COVID hotline at 888-312-0847.
VIP Children’s Clinics looks to be a COVID-19 vaccine provider soon, but we encourage all eligible patients to be vaccinated using these other resources in the meantime.
Our Children’s Clinics are committed to keeping your family healthy and safe with updated office procedures and televisit options.Learn more
