NBC Universal, Inc.

Children between 12 and 15 are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in Connecticut after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended the vaccine for the age group Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Dr.  Jody Terranova, assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at UConn School of Medicine, spoke with UConn today about what parents need to know. You can read what she said here.

Parents and legal guardians can sign their children up for an appointment or visit a vaccine clinic that is accepting walkup patients.

Pfizer is the only coronavirus vaccine has been approved for children in this age group, so those planning to attend walkup clinics should check which vaccine is available ahead of time.

Children must have the consent of a parent or legal guardian to get a vaccine.

State officials said roughly 170,000 children are in this age group that is now able to get a shot.

Pharmacies Offering Pfizer Vaccine

Many pharmacies are offering the Pfizer vaccine, including CVS, Walgreens and RiteAid locations. CVS said they will be scheduling for the new age group in 45 locations in Connecticut. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The state also plans to work with local health and school districts and summer youth programs to make the vaccine easily accessible.

Most pediatrician offices will not be able to offer the vaccine immediately due to its storage requirements. Some offices may partner with vaccine providers to offer the shot.

In Old Saybrook, appointments are available online here.
