Bridgeport Medical Center Hosts COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for Children Ages 5-11

St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport hopes to vaccinate up to 300 children today at one of their first vaccine clinics for children ages 5 to 11.

For many kids in the vaccine clinic, there wasn’t much hassle getting the vaccine.

Children ages 5 to 11 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine, which is a lower dosage than adults.

News 12 Connecticut spoke to an 11-year-old from Milford who rolled up his sleeve to take the photo.

Logan Rodrigues said he wanted to get the vaccine because he wants to get back to normal as it was in 2019.

St. Vincent’s Medical Center says they will be giving the vaccine to this age group until 4 p.m.

Appointments are available online.
