UPDATE: COVID-19 Vaccine for Ages 5-11

The Pfizer vaccine has been approved for children 5-11 years old.    Spring Valley Pediatrics is offering the vaccine for our patients 5 and above.  Please call our office Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm to make an appointment.  Below are resources provided by the surrounding Departments of Health with more information on other locations where your child can receive the vaccine.


  • From Montgomery Co:

“Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for 5-to-11-year-olds is expected to be authorized for emergency use in the coming days. MCPS is partnering with the county’s Department of Health and Human Services and Holy Cross Hospital to offer a number of free vaccination clinics for children at schools and county sites once the vaccine is available.”

  • From Fairfax Co:
“Vaccine will be available through pediatric and family medical practices, as well as local pharmacies and the Tysons Community Vaccination Center. In addition, the Health Department will provide COVID-19 vaccine to children by appointment only. Since it is a different dose, it is not interchangeable with the COVID vaccine used for 12 years and above, so parents will need to wait to seek vaccine for their younger children.”

  • From DC:
“Today, the Bowser Administration announced plans for vaccinating children against COVID-19. Once the pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved and distributed, families will be able to be vaccinated at more than 60 pharmacies, hospitals, and health centers in DC that will have the vaccine. Information about where the vaccine is available will be on vaccines.gov.
Once approved, the vaccine will be shipped out. Washington, DC is expected to initially receive 24,600 doses that will be distributed to pharmacies, hospitals, and health centers across DC.
To provide additional opportunities for access, families will also be able to go to District operated pop-up sites set up specifically for 5-11 year olds. Families will be given more details about the second dose after their first dose. The COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year olds will not be immediately available at the District’s Take the Shot sites.
