BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Massachusetts parents can now start making appointments for their children to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus.
This comes as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use in children between the age of five and 11 last week.
Future vaccination sites are being identified across the state including the Museum of Science in Boston.
While the location will not be up and running until November 14th, there are many other places where parents and guardians can start making appointments.
Vaccine locations can be found on the state’s website by using the Vaxfinder feature. Parents can also talk to their child’s pediatrician to find a location.
Governor Charlie Baker has said that nearly every child in Massachusetts lives within 30 minutes of a vaccine clinic.
