All children ages 5 and older are approved for the COVID-19 vaccine. MPI strongly recommends the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, resources are limiting our ability to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in the office. Our priority is for our patients and families to access the vaccine as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once your child is eligible to receive the immunization you may schedule an appointment for them to receive it at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. There is a scheduling link present on their website: https://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/patients/coronavirus-information/vaccines/schedule . You may also schedule a vaccine appointment through the health department. If your child is over the age of 7, they may obtain the vaccine at local pharmacies.
