Kids ages 12 and up may soon be able to get their Phizer jab in Dallas according to an NBC 5 DFW article from May 10. In it they say:
“Those as young as 12 could be inoculated at Dallas’ Fair Park COVID-19 vaccine hub site as soon as Saturday, county officials say.
The announcement came after the Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use approval for the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine for kids ages 12 to 15.”
Appointments are NOT required for the first shot, but you can register online to help speed things up and keep everything organized according to a Dallas Morning News article from May 10th. In it they say:
“Appointments have not been required recently for first doses, but people can register at dallascounty.org, which officials have said will help speed the process.
By early April, 100,000 kids who weren’t yet eligible for the vaccines already had registered for them in Dallas County”
Earlier, the Pfizer vaccine wasn’t always available at all Dallas vaccine locations, but now that it’s been approved for minors’ use, it should be readily available soon.
