[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccines for Children 6 Months and Older Now Approved

COVID-19 vaccines are now approved for children as young as six months old. Not all clinics and providers are ready right now to administer the vaccine, and we ask that parents remain patient as providers work through the initial rush for vaccination, now that the vaccine has been approved for this age group. If you have not already received a message from your health care provider, reach out to them for more information or to talk about scheduling a vaccine for your child. 


Right now pharmacies in Whatcom County do not offer vaccines to this youngest age group. We will let you know if that changes. 


 Because of the thorough authorization and review process associated with these vaccines, you can rest assured that the recommended vaccine series will be the safest and most effective option for children as young as six months old. You can also get more information on testing and clinical trails on kid’s COVID-19 vaccines from the State Department of Health.
