Update on the COVID-19 Vaccine for Children Ages 5 – 11 

The Pfizer vaccine is approved for children in the 5-11 year range. Burleson Public Health has taken the position of not offering the COVID-19 vaccine to this age range at the vaccine center. Public Health believes that children of this age range should ideally be vaccinated in their pediatrician’s office or the local pharmacies that will be providing the childhood COVID-19 vaccine. Many local pharmacies/medical in our community are offering the Pfizer vaccine to the 5-11-year-old age range. Burleson Cook Children’s will also be offering vaccinations. The city’s hotline staff will refer callers inquiring about the vaccine for children in the 5-11 age range to area pharmacies if the caller does not have a pediatrician.

COVID-19 Booster Shots

  1. On March 30th, 2022, the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their booster authorizations and recommendations for COVID-19 vaccination in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as their booster shot; either the same vaccine previously received, or as a “mix-and-match” booster dose with any other available vaccine.

  2. For FIRST booster

    Individuals 12 years and older are eligible for a booster shot at 5 months or more after their primary series for Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

    Individuals 18 years and older are eligible for a booster shot at 5 months or more after their primary series for Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

    For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 years and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

    For SECOND booster

    According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its clinical recommendations to include the following:

    A second booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to individuals 50 years of age and older at least 4 months after receipt of a first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

    A second booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to certain immunocompromised individuals (see below) 12 years of age and older at least 4 months after receipt of a first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

    A second booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine may be administered to certain immunocompromised individuals 18 years of age and older at least 4 months after the first booster dose of any authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine.

    In addition, adults who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

    Immunocompromised individuals include people with a range of conditions, such as recipients of organ or stem cell transplants, people with advanced or untreated HIV infection, recipients of active treatment for cancer, people who are taking some medications that weaken the immune system, and others. A full list of conditions can be found on CDC’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/immuno.html

    Texas Health and Human Services (link https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/)  and Burleson Public Health Authority recommends that people consult a healthcare provider if they have questions about their risks from COVID-19 and whether a booster dose would be beneficial for them.
