Pfizer vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis. Children who have been infected with COVID-19 in the past can receive the vaccine if 90 days have passed since testing positive. Second doses will be administered Saturday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 5. Carefully select your appointments for the first and second dose when registering online.
