SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Are your kids out of school for Veterans Day? You can take them to get a COVID-19 vaccine, no appointment necessary.
Zuckerberg SF General Hospital has drop-in availability from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, only for children ages 5-11 years old.
Smaller doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was recently authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC for the younger age group.
The kids get 1/3 the dose that adults and teens receive. They need two doses, three weeks apart, just like everyone else who gets a Pfizer vaccine.
