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
On October 21, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines 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.
For individuals who received a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their primary series:
- 65 years and older
- Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
- Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Department of Health and Human Services (DSHS) 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.
