LANSING, Mich. – The Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) will start vaccinating a newly eligible group of children, those ages 6 months through 4 years old, against COVID-19 starting Tuesday, June 28, by appointment. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were authorized and recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) late last week.
Clinics run on Tuesdays, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Human Services Building located at 5303 S. Cedar Street in Lansing. ICHD will also partner with Michigan State University to offer clinics at the Breslin Center on July 1 and July 29, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Parents/guardians wishing to protect their children from COVID-19 may schedule an appointment through the links below or on the health department’s website. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of vaccination.
“This youngest age group and their families have been anxiously waiting for the authorization of this vaccine for a very long time,” said Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. “The vaccine will give children significant protection from COVID-19 and further contribute to protecting our community.”
