Pfizer vaccine available for children as young as 12

The Coastal Health District is scheduling appointments for special Pfizer vaccine clinics at seven health department locations. 

Pfizer is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for individuals as young as 12.

“Several of our clinics typically offer Moderna vaccine for anyone 18 and older, but we want to be sure our younger residents have the opportunity for vaccination, too,” said Paige Lightsey, immunization coordinator for the Coastal Health District. “That’s why we’re offering special Pfizer clinics, so everyone 12 and older will have access to the vaccine.” 

The Pfizer clinics will be offered in Bryan, Camden, Effingham, Liberty, Long and McIntosh counties. Glynn and Chatham Counties already offer Pfizer during normal clinic hours.

 These special Pfizer clinics are not limited to teens; adults who would like to receive Pfizer can also schedule appointments. There is no cost for the vaccine. 

Appointments are preferred and can be scheduled online at or by calling 912-230-5506. Walk-ins are welcome, but subject to vaccine availability at the time of the clinic. 

 “Now is a great time to get your child vaccinated,” said Lightsey. “By starting the two-dose vaccine series now, your child will be fully vaccinated and protected when school begins in the fall.” 

Pfizer vaccine requires two doses. Recipients will be scheduled for their second dose of vaccine three weeks after receiving their first dose at the clinic.
