HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – The Hampton Coliseum clinic will now offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 12-15, beginning this Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advisory panel on Wednesday voted to back the use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children in this age group.

The Hampton Coliseum clinic recommends you reserve a time. You can make an appointment at this link. Walk-ups will be accepted, though.

The clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:15 p.m. until June 19. A parent or guardian must accompany a minor. Currently, only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for those 12-17 years old.

In order to receive the second dose from the Coliseum clinic, officials say the first dose needs to be taken by May 29. Any persons receiving the vaccine after that date need to plan to get the second dose elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Hampton City Schools is working with the health department to offer the vaccine to eligible students at HCS facilities.
