Following the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and health districts throughout Georgia are offering Pfizer pediatric COVID vaccine to children 5-11 years old.

COVID-19 boosters are currently available through the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) health districts and participating providers.
CDC recommends a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine for all persons aged 18 or older, at least 5 months after completion of a mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) primary series, or at least 2 months after receipt of the single primary dose Janssen vaccine. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Adolescents aged 12-17 years may receive a single booster dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 at least 5 months after completion of the primary series. At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 12 through 17.
