The US Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for ages 5 to 11.  The vaccine is formulated at one-third the dose of the vaccine used for people ages 12 and older.   

This week, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, an independent committee that gives guidance to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, voted to endorse the administration of the vaccine to children ages 5-11 years old. 

PAMPA Pediatrics also supports the use of the Pfizer vaccine for our patients in the 5-11 age group.  We anticipate scheduling for our vaccination clinics within a week.  Please make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and watch your email for more information.  We understand that some families may want to have their children vaccinated as soon as possible.  Below are links to other places offering the vaccine.

We will continue to update you on the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent increased risk due to the Delta variant. The Delta variant is currently the predominant strain of COVID 19 circulating in the United States. It causes more infections and spreads faster than early forms of SARS-Cov-2. The greatest risk of transmission is among unvaccinated people who are more likely to contract and transmit the virus. This puts our pediatric population at significant risk.   Our offices are devoted to providing a safe environment for everyone during this busy time. PAMPA follows the recommendations and guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The offices are cleaned and sanitized multiple times per day. Exam rooms are cleaned and sanitized between each patient.

We REQUIRE masks for all staff and patients over 2 years of age inside our facilities.

We encourage the COVID 19 vaccination for all patients who are eligible.

We provide COVID PCR testing for symptomatic patients only during a scheduled visit.

We do NOT provide return to school/daycare notes to return to school. Please follow the guidelines of your school administrator. The CDC recommendation is available in the link below.
