Metro Health will administer the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine to children 5 to 11 years starting Wednesday, November 10 at the Alamodome and pop-up clinic vaccination sites.

The pediatricians’ offices are the first essential site for COVID vaccinations for children, ages 5-11, and are a priority for the distribution of the vaccine.

Any COVID-19 vaccine for children age 5 through 11 is subject to the same multi-step testing and approval process as all other COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 vaccines - including those routinely recommended for childhood vaccination.

Parents and guardians, who take their children to get vaccinated at a Metro Health clinic, are eligible to receive a $100 H-E-B gift card.

View a list of vaccine locations, or call 311 and select option 8. The Alamodome drive-thru clinic is open from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesdays-Fridays. COVID vaccines for children, 5 to 11 years old, will also be offered at all pharmacies and retail stores.
