COVID-19 Vaccine Update

PANW Covid Vaccine Scheduling

Recently, Pfizer submitted their application to the FDA for authorization of their vaccine for children under 5 years. Below, we outline the current status of each age group and what PANW is able to provide on-site.

16 YEARS AND OLDER

  • Unvaccinated individuals should get vaccinated
  • Those who are already vaccinated should get a booster dose 5 months after their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or 2 months after the single-dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
  • At this time, the Pfizer vaccine is authorized and recommended for 5 years and older while the Moderna vaccine can be given to anyone 18 years and older.
  • Note: we only have the Pfizer vaccine available. If you are 18 years and older and would like a Moderna booster, please visit the OHA Vaccine Finder website to locate a community vaccine site.
  • First, second, and booster doses of the Pfizer vaccine are available at PANW. Patients may receive their vaccine at an already scheduled appointment in the office (well visit, follow-up, etc.). Patients may also schedule a “vaccine-only” appointment if they do not have an upcoming office visit scheduled. 
  • Currently, we are not able to offer COVID-19 vaccines or booster doses to family members. We hope to do so as our resources improve.

12-15 YEAR OLDS

  • Unvaccinated individuals should get vaccinated
  • Those who are already vaccinated should get a booster dose 5 months after their second dose 
  • At this time, the Pfizer vaccine is authorized and recommended for 5 years and older while the Moderna vaccine is only for 18 years and older.
  • First, second, and booster doses of the Pfizer vaccine are available at PANW. Patients may receive their vaccine at an already scheduled appointment in the office (well visit, follow-up, etc.) or patients can schedule a “vaccine-only” appointment if they do not have an upcoming office visit scheduled. 
  • Currently, we are not able to offer COVID-19 vaccines or booster doses to family members. We hope to do so as our resources improve.

6 MONTHS – 4 YEAR OLDS

All PANW providers continue to strongly recommend that unvaccinated individuals get vaccinated, especially as we head into the winter season. If you have questions or concerns, our team is here to discuss and provide information without judgment.
