Health officials want to remind parents and guardians that walk-up access to the pediatric dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays outside the Health Care District's Lantana Clinic located at 1250 Southwinds Drive in Lantana.
"We'd like to remind the community that our mobile unit in the parking lot of our Lantana Clinic is a convenient site during the week for children as young as five to be vaccinated against COVID-19," said Dr. Belma Andrić, the Health Care District's Chief Medical Officer. "No appointment is necessary so families can stop by during the day and know the vaccine is available for them and their children."
Children ages 5 through 17 must be with a parent or guardian to be vaccinated.
Vaccines for children ages 5 to 11 as well as the adult version for those 12 or older are available at multiple locations in Palm Beach County this month.
