Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages five and older. The Florida Department of Health – Sarasota (DOH) is currently waiting to receive the vaccine for distribution.
Parents may be wondering where they can take their children to get vaccinated. The vaccine is not immediately available at all locations, as it is currently being shipped from Pfizer to providers.
According to the CDC, distribution has begun across the nation. Retail pharmacies, pediatrician offices, and other providers will be able to order the vaccine in the coming days.
At this time, no county health department in the West Central Florida region – including Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties – have received the vaccine at this time. As the vaccine becomes available, additional announcements will be made.
In addition, the DOH is recommending the community contact their medical provider, local retail pharmacies or visit vaccines.gov for additional information.
