Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) will expand availability of COVID-19 vaccines to children aged 5-11, according to CDC guidelines.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently granted emergency use authorization to Pfizer-BioNTech for vaccinating children in this age group against COVID-19. 

The vaccine involves two shots given no less than 21 days apart. Children under 12 receive a lower dose than those 12 and older.

Parents can call (928) 263-3945 to schedule a vaccine appointment for their children. A parent or legal guardian must accompany the child to the appointment and bring:
•    Identification for the parent/legal guardian
•    Identification to verify the child’s age (ex. birth certificate or passport)

KRMC COVID Services can only accommodate the child or children to be vaccinated and one parent/guardian at the appointment.
