Questions about the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for kids?

A Dayton Children’s expert is ready to answer them!

Experts believe the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be available for children ages 5-11 in early November. Dayton Children’s wants parents to have information from a trusted source to make their decisions. Dr. Adam Mezoff, chief medical officer, will host two virtual information sessions to share information on how COVID-19 impacts children, the research on Pfizer’s vaccine for children ages 5-11 and what the FDA and CDC are saying about the vaccine as they review the data. The presentation will last approximately 20 minutes, then Dr. Mezoff will answer questions from parents.
