On Monday, May 10 the F.D.A. expanded the Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine to include use in patients 12-15 years old.  There is still one more step before US approval, with a C.D.C. committee likely meeting Wednesday, May 12 to finalize approval.   Once that occurs, Heritage Pediatrics will open online scheduling to our patients and families to begin providing Pfizer vaccinations immediately through our drive-through vaccine clinic model similar to our influenza vaccine.  We anticipate availability as early as Thursday or Friday to begin vaccinating teens at the office. Stay posted on Facebook and on our website at heritagepediatrics.com for more info.
