Beginning Dec. 14, Seattle Children’s began offering updated (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccines to children aged 6 months to 5 years old at our hospital campus.
The Moderna bivalent vaccine is available as a booster to children aged 6 months to 5 who have received two doses of the monovalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series.
The Pfizer-BioNTech bivalent vaccine is available to children aged 6 months to 4 years as a third dose to those who have not completed their three-dose primary Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine series. The Pfizer bivalent vaccine is not yet approved for use as a booster for this age group.
Appointments are now available at our hospital campus vaccination clinic. We anticipate being able to offer the updated Pfizer vaccine for this age group at our Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) at Othello later this week.
COVID-19 vaccine appointments at our hospital campus can be made through our website and at OBCC Othello by calling the clinic directly at 206-987-7210.
