NORRISTOWN, PA – The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is now scheduling appointments for children ages 5-11 to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine following FDA and CDC recommendation.

Children ages 5-11 have been authorized to receive the Pfizer vaccine only. Moderna and J&J vaccines are still being evaluated for this age group. Any COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11 is subject to the very same multi-step testing and approval process as all other COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 vaccines ─ including those routinely recommended for childhood vaccination. For the latest information on approval, visit the CDC website.

Vaccine appointments can be made online at or by calling (833) 875-3967 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Appointments will begin Thursday, November 4. Appointments are required, and there is no cost to receive the vaccine. Appointments are open to children who live or go to school in Montgomery County, PA.

All minors (under age 18) seeking to get vaccinated at a Montgomery County clinic must either be physically accompanied by a parent/legal guardian or an authorized substitute. For more guidance on this, click here and scroll to the 'Getting vaccinated as a minor in Montco' heading.
