Hundreds Of Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccination Sites Coming Online In Massachusetts For Kids’ Shots – CBS Boston
BOSTON (CBS) — Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will outline the state’s plan on Thursday to make more COVID-19 pediatric vaccines available.
Baker will hold a news conference with Acting Public Health Commissioner Margret Cooke at Boston Children’s Hospital at 10:30 a.m. You can watch it live on CBSN Boston in the video above.
The first photos for children aged 5 to 11 are now available, but many parents are struggling to make arrangements. About half a million children in Massachusetts are now eligible for Pfizer’s dual pediatric dose, but some parents told WBZ-TV they’ve hit roadblocks and can’t find appointments nearby.
The state says hundreds of additional sites will come online on Thursday, and Mass.Gov and the VaxFinder tool will be updated “as more providers get up and running.”
CVS and Walgreens also book appointments online for this weekend and beyond.
