The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use in children 12- to 15- years old.  Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to this age group.

It is located at the former Gander Mountain building at 14011 Worth Avenue, Woodbridge.
