Pediatric doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine are now available for children ages 5-11 at Kaiser Permanente, Walmart, and Longs in Kukui Grove, and at Hoola Lahui.
NOTE: At this time, children younger than 12 years old are not eligible for a booster.
Vaccination protects your child and reduces the likelihood they’ll transmit the virus to family members, friends, and others.
Vaccine recipients must be 5 years old or older on the day of the appointment. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The vaccine is free. No insurance is needed.
"Because of the rise in hospitalized, unvaccinated children, it’s especially important for children and their household members to be vaccinated,” said Kaua‘i District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman. “The vaccine reduces the chances your keiki will get seriously sick if exposed, while reducing the chances your family will have to isolate or quarantine. Although COVID-19 in children is usually milder than in adults, some children become very sick, requiring hospitalization, and some experience long-term health effects."

Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami is encouraging Kaua‘i parents to get their kids vaccinated or to talk to their pediatricians if they have concerns.
“Vaccines are our path forward and will help keep our keiki and those around them safe,” said Mayor Kawakami. “But we understand it’s a personal decision that should be discussed between family and those you turn to for healthcare needs.”
