DANVILLE, Pa. – Following recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Geisinger is offering doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children age 6 months to 4 years old.  

The Pfizer vaccine will come in a total of three shots administered over the course of 11 weeks, for children between 6 months and 4 years old. The doses are sized at 3 micrograms, which is one-tenth of the 30-microgram shots for those 12 and older. 

Data continues to show the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccinating those age 5 and under will help further stop the spread. If you’re unsure if your child qualifies for a vaccine or have any specific questions, contact their pediatrician. 

First doses for children between 6 months and 4 years old will begin Saturday, June 25. Geisinger pediatric clinics are accepting appointments for vaccines for those who are eligible. You can make an appointment at Geisinger through MyGeisinger or the MyChart mobile app, or by calling 570-284-3657.
